Hawaii's Bridges: Lili'uokalani Garden Bridges (3)

April 2001 (19.726 Degrees, -155.069 Degrees) Lili'uokalani Garden Bridges
It looks like this little bridge was built by putting up a wooden form and casting the igneous rocks (that are so abundant on this volcanic island) into an arch shape. A red gazebo with a mossy roof was built on top.

The Hawaiian Islands were formed by a hot spot where lava flows from the mantle up to the surface. As the Pacific Plate gradually moved, the hot spot formed a chain of islands with the Big Island (where this photo was taken) currently over the hot spot.
