COURIER travel: Hawaiian Island from the air

There are many unique and beautiful sights all along the Hawaiian Islands. The most populated island, Oahu, with about one million people mostly in Honolulu, compromise 90 percent of the population of all the islands. Even with the large number of residents and tourists, the island has plenty of rural farmlands and countryside. Annual rain amounts vary greatly because of the tropical terrain. Honolulu averages 17 inches yearly, while mountain locations get four times that amount, raining over 220 days a year. Because of poor planning, traffic problems are severe as any city, making getting around the island a chore. But there is no denying there are plenty of things to do, including finding the spectacular views around the island, especially along the coastline with the crystal clear blue waters.
