Location: Waimea, Big Island, Hawaii
Early this morning, we went to the little town of Waimea to do some shopping. It was sunny on the coast where we live, but as we approached Waimea, rain clouds began to roll in over the surrounding hills. We stopped near this old farm road on the outskirts of the town so that I could take a few pictures.
Waimea is a small town surrounded by farms and ranches, on Hawaii's Big Island. Situated well upslope from the coast at an elevation of about 2,500 feet, the air temperature in Waimea usually is about 10 to 20 degrees (F) cooler than at sea level. This is true year round.
