Writ in Black Lava

From Kona International Airport to Waikoloa on Highway 19, part of the Hawaii Belt Road that winds all around the Big Island. On one side of the road you see black lava and the ocean, on the other, black lava and the mountains. Visitors create graffiti on the jagged black surface using white coral rocks -- mostly names, inane messages, and the occasional jarring RIP.
