Gorgeous Manoa Falls

It’s a pretty easy hike from the back of Manoa Valley to the beautiful falls, with lots of interesting plants and birds encountered along the way.  Sometimes the falls are just a trickle of water, but during or after a heavy rain they can really flow.

Intrepid hikers sometimes scramble up a tangle of banyan tree roots to reach a hidden pool atop the falls.  There have been some injuries, including among people rappelling down the falls on ropes.

 

But a few days ago a real tragedy struck when a young woman somehow fell to her death from atop the falls.  The story is very, very sad.

Perhaps her spirit will reside there forever amid the beauty.
