Pipiwai Trail, not to be missed Mar 09, 2010
We hiked to Waimoku Falls in Haleakala National Park. It was a gorgeous sunny day. I started out with daughter in my backpack but she started screaming "my walk!" three minutes in. She proceeded to walk a significant portion of the 4 mile hike while holding my hand. Passers by were VERY impressed by her stamina.
Along the way, there were tons of hidden caves, alien-looking trees, and smaller waterfalls. There was even a huge waterfall gushing out of a lava tube and into an underground cave.
Half way through, the hike morphed into a wild bamboo forest. It swayed as a single entity in the wind (a storm was beginning to form by that time...the rain forest we're staying in has huge storms for a couple moments, then goes back to sunshine).
The actual falls at the top is magnificent, 400 feet tall. This was one of the Wilde Family's favorite hikes ever!
