It has been a few days since the Amazing Epic Adventure has started and it is beginning to get Epic. Today Alan and I took a helicopters tour with Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tours and it was amazing. We saw both waterfalls and erupting volcano on the island of Hilo. It was Epic. What astonished me is in some places of the lava field there were small islands of rainforest untouched. Also in places that were covered and destroyed just five years ago are sprouting trees. I inquired if they were planted, and no, all natural growth. Amazing. As we flew over the main crater that is erupting, you can smell and taste the sulfur in the environment. Not much, just enough. I asked the pilot if the air temperature fluxuated over the crater. He said no, amazingly not. In fact he said that the geologist who studied the crater didn't wear enviromental protection unless they were right at the crater when the lava was splattering out. One Epic Adventure down, more to come.
