When it Rains in Hawaii -The Waterfalls are Amazing

With the almost non-stop days of rain in East Hawaii, the plants around paradise are happy.

 

Even with the constant rain, its easy to be outside to do errands and still enjoy the day. Driving to a party at Honomu town, I decided to stop and visit the beautiful waterfalls at Akaka Falls. The falls should be amazing now with the rush of waters coming down from the higher elevations of Mauna Kea into the canyon gulches below before they flow into the Pacific ocean.

Wasn’t I right?  Its is amazing to see this - sometimes you just need to take a

break from the everyday routines to enjoy the moment and nature around you.

Especially when it puts on such a spectacular display.

Wow Noel, that is such a tall one, very beautiful. Maybe you already know through my posts that i love waterfalls, and I've been to a few of those here in the country. That in the first photos looks like a temporary small falls due to the rain!

Truly magical Noel.

They do look spectacular. I can almost imagine hearing the rush of the water tumbling over the rocks and plants.

Good to step off the daily grind, and go from a human doing. To a human, being.

Noel, This waterfall is spectacular! My husband and I share a fascination with waterfalls. We have made it our mission to photograph all the waterfalls in nearby Hamilton (there are over 30). Have you ever seen a frozen waterfall? Check out this oder post: http://threedogsinagarden.blogspot.com/2010/12/quest-5-waterfalls-and-counting.html
