Big Island Weekend Itinerary (5 Days)

This itinerary pertained to a dedicated Big Island weekend trip, where we aimed to visit the remaining waterfalls (or at least see them flowing) that we either missed or didn't have a good experience in our previous visits. This should have been the itinerary for our prior rained out trip just three weeks prior to this one, but we added one more day just to ensure some added flexibility just in case the helicopter tour was cancelled once again. So for all intents and purposes, this trip was pretty much a redo. In any case, we were successful (finally) in seeing waterfalls via helicopter (though we missed out on Waikoloa Falls). We were also finally able to see both Hi'ilawe Falls and Kulaniapia Falls in more normal flow. By now, Julie and I were quite familiar with this island (as well as the other Hawaiian Islands), and little would we realize that this would be the last time we'd visit the islands for several years (after having done 6 in a spain of a year and a half).
