The Big Island of Hawaii

A beautiful cliff on the Island of Hawaii, also know as The Big Island. A volcanic island, The Big Island was formed from five separate volcanoes that erupted somewhat sequentially, one overlapping the other. Because two are still active volcanoes, Mauna Loa and Kilauea, the island is still growing. Sugarcane is the backbone of the island's economy, and the largest cattle ranches in the United States are there including Parker Ranch, which sits on 175,000 acres.
