The spectacular Kaliuwa'a Falls, Oahu, Hawaii 23 Apr 2016
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.
