Field Trip Introduction
In the fall of 2011 ten students and their two professors embarked on a geographical journey to the isolated Hawaiian islands, but specifically, to the island of Hawai`i. What we saw and did there was not only fun, but provided us with a valued learning experience that we will all positively cherish for the rest of our lives. We spent the majority of our days traveling around the island, and making stops at locations of physical and cultural significance within the realm of geography. These stops included state and national parks, beautiful beaches, local businesses, historic sites, and any other places our professors deemed relevant learning opportunities. This weblog chronicles our ten day adventure throughout the island, as seen through the eyes of a geographer.
