Montee -- thank you. saddle road was originally built by the military to join both sides of the island. the road is treacherous but that section can be avoided by taking the new Daniel Inouye highway. there is actually a series of one-lane bridges on that road -- why they built it that way I don't know. accidents? heck yeah. it's a killer. I drove the seven hills in good and bad weather, and when there's foul weather or fog saddle road is one of the worst roads that I've ever driven.
we had to go from kona to hilo several times because we stayed on the kona side but had to go to hilo for the helicopter tour and to visit volcanoes NP. I was cancelled three times before I went up because of a storm that dumped 23" of rain in two days.
