Part 3: In Which the Waterfall is Found on a Rainy Day

And all the pictures I thought were gonna be super hot turned out awful cause guess what, out of focus.

This water was coming out of a rather random rusty pipe that started who knows where. Safe to drink if you like tetanus I guess.

Typically this stream is remarkably clear. Hawaii has problems with invasive species that don’t hold topsoil during rains though and so it was quite muddy on account of the rains.

I love the lava like look of the ginger leaves here.

Oh boy would my sister hate to see this picture. Thankfully, she probably never will.

Actually, This Was Attempt One

So, turns out I lied and the previous smorgasbord of photos was attempt two. This was attempt one in which I fell for the first time hiking in years and almost broke my camera, the most disappointing of the hikes, in terms of photo quality at least.

Not pictured because they didn’t turn out, the massive banyan we climbed just above the spring that made a small brook or te tree with branches more convoluted than a teenager’s game of twister.

So here is another beautiful ginger that I all but ruined with poor focus. I attribute it to the steady drizzle.
