Tagged: Manoa Falls

On our second full day in Hawaii, we hiked up to Manoa Falls. It was supposed to be a super easy hike, so we wore flip-flops.

We didn’t realize it would be the Hike Of Mud.

Beautiful though. Incredibly beautiful.

I love to hike. It’s one of the things I hate most about living in texas (specifically dallas) – there is nowhere to hike that has mountains, lots of trees, hills, or beautiful scenery in general. Plus it’s always too hot or when it’s not hot everything is dead.

So I was super excited for the chance to hike through the hills/mountains to a waterfall in Hawaii. As an extra bonus, we later found that several scenes from Lost were filmed in the area.

I tried to organize everyone for a group photo before starting on the hike. It didn’t work out that great…

Second attempt was not much better…

Mr. Uncooperative wanted his picture taken more “candidly,” I guess:

He was very excited about passing through the gate:

I love the banyan trees; they are so cool:

I also love all the green:

Sometimes people get in my shots:

I posted the black&white version of this one awhile ago – I love the light; the way the sun was coming through the trees was amazing:


I was just shocked when we got there, I guess:

The waterfall:

Ah, boys…
