Pololu Valley

If I could go back to the Big Island, I would love to spend a week hiking around the backcountry of Pololu Valley on the northern coast. It's a remarkable intersection of forest, wetlands, seacliffs, and beach. I'm told that the opening scenes of Jurassic Park were filmed here. It also produces really smooth stones - great for skipping and building cairns. They look hard to build--but we had a little contest and in five minutes we were able to build piles of 15 or 16 stones without trouble. Someone else did this one, though.
