Ka`ala Stream to Kumaipo Stream Loop

5th Hike


Today Stanka, Alan and I would do a short hike.  The main plan was to check the lowest section of Ka`ala Stream and see if we wanted to include it in a later hike that covered the whole stream all the way to Ka`ala Falls.  As it turned out there was nothing exceptional about this section, but I think we will clear and use it on the new Ka`ala Falls hike.

All of today's pictures were taken by Stanka.  I shot a lot of video but nothing worth presenting to the general public reading my reports.

We began the loop at the Jack Fruit tree. 

For some reason the fruit never mature and so they drop to the ground much smaller than would be expected.

Being the photo artist she is, Stanks did this close up of the fruit.
