The One Spot In Hawaii That’s Basically Heaven On Earth
The Hawaiian Islands are an absolute paradise, home to countless pristine beaches, majestic mountains, awe-inspiring jungles and cascading waterfalls. But there are some spots more heavenly than others, like the breathtaking Wailuku River State Park near Hilo. The second largest river in Hawaii, Wailuku River flows 18 miles along the line where lava from Hawaii Island’s two major volcanoes – Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea – meet. The river eroded a gorge in the lava flows, and creates a simply heavenly landscape.
