Pololu Valley Hike
This was a very interesting hike which took us through a variety of different landscapes. The 5 mile hike with 1000 foot elevation gain started with a black sand beach after an initial downhill switchback, meadows growing on sand dunes and a very humid jungle of Pandanus and mango trees. Our trail was adorned with giant ferns as we trudged along the mud.
Geology of the Hawaiian Islands
I find that I appreciate a place more when I know how it got there. The stories of its origin, its geology, adds to the depth of what I see before me. We learned some interesting geology facts from a Ranger talk and a sign posted at the Hohei Sea Arch trailhead. Volcanoes National Park consists of Mauna Loa and Kilauea Volcanoes. I've included the other 3 volcanoes here for the sake of completeness.
