Lots of people make the ostensibly forbidden hike up a steady incline into Waiheʻe Valley in Kahaluʻu to see beautiful Hamama Falls.
Lots of nice wild orchids along the way.
At least it says “Aloha.” That’s what makes Hawaiʻi different.
Nice, clear, cool water in the swimming hole below the old water supply spillway.
Wild Butterfly Pea flowers.
Up, up, up until you’re there.
No place to swim, but it’s great to look at.
Waiheʻe Stream is usually pretty mellow.
Not so pretty. Why do people always toss their junk near trailheads? At least somebody saved the cylinder head for something.
Raggedy Tree Marigold with a bumblebee visitor.
One more for the road! Beautiful.
