Akaka Falls

On a recent trip to the Big island of Hawaii, we stopped over at Akaka Falls State Park to see one of the major waterfalls of the island – Akaka Falls!

Entering the park, you are immediately surrounded by greenery and rushing creeks:

Such a nice change from the drought we are having in California!  The canopy is beautiful and diverseIMG_8925

with many bamboos through the forest:

It really is impresive!  You can almost feel the mist on your face from looking at this picture!
