Waihou Springs Trail

There’s nothing like the feeling of being completely immersed in a forest, surrounded by everything green, fresh and beautiful. Here are a few pictures to share my recent hike on the Waihou Springs trail, near the top of Olinda Road, above the town of Makawao.

Looking up at the rock face that the springs come through. Yes, originally we were at the top of that and would be walking all the way back up!

What a beautiful day!  While I always knew it intuitively, there’s a science to the peace that forests bring. See this article at SFGate for the whole story.
