Day 14 - Akaka Falls - Part 2 of 3

January 25, 2010 - Monday - Big Island

Akaka Falls is one of the taller Hawaiian falls at 422 feet.

Basket weavers are everywhere.

The falls are in a rain forest area with beautiful foliage.

One of several large stands of bamboo.

It is about a 1/2 mile walk to the falls with lots of ups and downs in a very humid environment. That means that I was huffing and puffing and sweating heavily but also enjoying the scenery.

A Banyan Tree with roots exposed.

A fern unrolling.

The falls.

A flower more strange than pretty.

This one looks more like a millipede than a flower.....creepy.

After huffing and puffing the 1/2 mile uphill and upstairs, we are off to Hilo.
