About this photo

Lush, verdant mountains and valleys are the result of heavy winds and rain on the eastern coast of Oahu. The Kaliuwa'a Falls area (Hawaiian name – also known as Sacred Falls State Park) pictured here is sadly a no-go area since a landslide there claimed eight lives in 1999. The trail has been closed indefinitely but for those intent on getting back to see the area, the only option is a helicopter tour.
