One island, 11 climate zones

Renata explained to us that there are 11 climate zones on the Big Island. The place we stayed, the Wild Orchid House, was somewhere around 2500 feet above sea level, in the rain forest. But the Kona area is more like a desert.

On our way there, passing the miles and miles of black lava fields, we saw graffiti. A lot of graffiti. But totally NATURAL graffiti.

I tried to take a photo out the window of the car as we were driving:

The graffiti (you know, like "Jen + Bob," various myspace urls, etc.) was in white coral rocks. The white rocks are arranged on the black lava field to make the graffiti. How ecologically responsible!
