This little plumeria bloom had fallen from a tree landing on the hard, rough lava rock below. I had pulled over on the South Point Road to get my bearings and take a break, pulling onto the berm of a private driveway where I found this. It was cheaper to fly into Kona and drive the island to my sister's in Mountain View than to fly into Hilo, much closer to her home. It was also beneficial to me as a photographer since I had planned to rent a car anyway. On the trip out, I dove one way around the island. On the trip back, I drove the opposite way. Tons of photo ops!
