As a society we overuse the word “epic” to a fault. It’s an easy fall back to describe something that is so striking, awesome or otherwise difficult to put into words. My beloved mother uses the word “epic” almost as often as she uses the word “friend” to describe Siri. But if ever there were a place deserving of the word “epic” it would be the Waipio Valley on the Island of Hawaii. We took a separate day trip there in addition to driving the circumference of the island. The drive was about 45 minutes from where we stayed in Waikoloa Village. Intrepid adventurers will either make the steep climb down the beach or head down in a car equipped with four wheel drive, but we just drove to the lookout point and took in the sights from there. Next time I plan to get all the way down to the bottom and see what the view is like from there.
