After staying out late the night before watching my niece and her band EMKE perform, I didn’t want to do a long or strenuous hike. So I scheduled a wicked easy, short walk/hike to Manoa Falls with Darrell and Neil. When we pulled into the parking lot, I knew there‘d be a good flow at the falls as it was pouring. But by the time we were ready to leave the parking lot, the rain had stopped. We got to the 100-foot falls and took our time, spending about half-an-hour admiring the falls, watching tourists, posing and taking photos. On our way out, I showed Darrell and Neil the trail to the Lua’alaea Falls. We only went as far as the Lua’alaea stream and noted a large downed tree. Enjoy some photos I took on our leisurely walk to Manoa Falls through the Manoa Valley. And a Mahalo nui loa to both Darrell and Neil for such wonderful companionship on my hikes here in Hawai'i!
