Kohala Mountains in Hawaii, Travel Photo Mondays
It’s Monday morning, time to enjoy some gorgeous travel photography and inspiration from around the world. Let’s banish those Monday blues by sharing gorgeous imagery and story telling.
- Gorgeous sunsets
Today, let’s go visit another beautiful area in Hawaii Island, this time we are going west to cattle country in the Kohala mountains in Hawaii. The Kohala mountains are the oldest of five mountains in Hawaii and are over a million years in age. The beautiful rolling hills of the upper road is gorgeous and the views to the Kohala coastline below is spectacular especially for viewing some of the most beautiful sunsets overlooking the entire island.
The area of Kohala is lush and green with rolling hills and pastureland for cattle to graze. This is cattle country, once a thriving industry in Hawaii’s agricultural past, but today it is now a smaller agricultural business with beef cattle being raised on the island for local consumption and export. There is also small fledgling dairy industry in Hawaii to service the entire island chain with fresh milk produced in Hawaii.

Sunsets up in Kohala
On clear nights, sunsets up in the Kohala mountains are pure magic and you can see the entire Kona coastline all the way to the town of Kailua Kona. If you wait until the sun sets and gets darker, the moon rising up along the rolling hills is also gorgeous to see and gives a different view of this scenic area and illuminating the rolling hills.
