Hawaii May Be America's Wildest Island

If you needed a reminder to cash in PTO, this is it.

There’s no doubt Hawaii is a wildly gorgeous paradise, but every once in a while, a video of the islands gives us a whole new appreciation for the Aloha State.

And “Hawaii ― The Pace Of Formation,” the video above, does just that.

Filmed by a team of Los Angeles-based videographers, this video features stunning footage of Hawaii’s Big Island, including moments of mesmerizing time lapse. It’s a soothing four minutes of oozing molten lava, rushing waterfalls, crashing waves and the whispers of winds from the highest point on the island, Mauna Kea.

The video serves as a relaxing reminder that Hawaii is always a good idea for getaway.
