On a recent visit to the Big Island of Hawaii, I returned to see Rainbow Falls near Hilo. Well, I almost couldn’t believe what I was seeing. There was barely a trickle of water cascading down the waterfall. I’ll show you what I mean. Here’s a photo of Rainbow Falls from our visit in January, 2010.
Now, here’s a photo of the same waterfall in March, 2008.
What a difference a rain makes. Hilo had been experiencing below normal rain levels just before our visit in January 2010. So, let this be a reminder that a little rain on your Hawaii vacation is not necessarily a bad thing.
