Falling Coconuts?! — Whittington Park, Na’alehu, Big Island Hawaii video


While on assignment on the southern part of the island, I noticed a sign that said “CAUTION: Beware of Falling Coconuts and Fronds.”

At first I thought it might be exaggerating the danger, but after more research, I learned just how dangerous falling coconuts can be. According to the Journal of Trauma-Injury Infection & Critical Care, a few people have even died from falling coconuts (although it’s quite rare). Pretty wild.

Anyway, enjoy! (More exciting news coming soon.) 🙂

On the Edge of the Pit Crater @ Sunset, Manuka State Park, Big Island Hawaii video


Welcome back!

As we make our way through my Big Island video journal, we reach another extreme place: Manuka Pit Crater.

Nestled deep within Manuka State Park, the crater formed when lava retreated from underneath the park. Be sure to check out the trees that cling to the edge. They’ve been growing on that precarious edge for years. And how beautiful it was at sunset!
