Yesterday, Shad and I checked out the Makiki Forest Recreation Area. The reserve is about a 40 minute walk from our front door. We walked through Makiki Heights and saw this excellent tree on the way.
Giant Tree in the Park
As we were just just on an exploratory visit and we didn’t leave our house until the middle of the day, we decided to hike around a relatively short loop.
We walked along the blue line.
I don’t have a whole lot of explaining to go along with these pictures, except to say that these pictures don’t do it justice (they almost never do). It was green and encompassing and amazing. There are pictures from the beginning of the trail where it looks a little manicured (which it is), but that path fell away quickly and we had a wonderful day hiking up and down a variety of steep grades. There were clean streams, chirping birds, and endless canopies of banyan trees and vines.
Welcome to Makiki Forest Recreation Area
Please enjoy the gallery of mostly green stuff and an occasional Shad (the person, not the fish) here or there. Also note that I’ve used the NextGen Gallery instead of the (stupid) built-in WordPress Gallery, so now you can scroll through images instead of having to continuously hit the ‘back’ button.
