With all the picturesque landscapes around, we thought we would be remiss if we didn’t get out to experience some of the beauty of nature away from the beach. We spent an afternoon hiking in the Waimea Valley – that is correct – HIKING. It is estimated that valley was carved into the Ko’olau Mountains more than 2 million years ago by rain and wind. It has remained one of the few places on the island of Oahu to observe natural species of vegetation, fish, birds and insects.
This is the view entering the valley.
The island is covered in beautiful flowers – a majority of them are indigenous and grow wild.
Orchids and Hibiscus.
At the end of the hiking trail, you reach Waimea Falls.
A very popular spot for locals and tourists alike, to come and spend a relaxing day in breath-taking surroundings.
