Na Pali Coast1840 viewsThis fifteen-mile stretch of rugged coastline on the northwest shore of Kauai literally means "the Cliffs." Much of Na Pali Coast is inaccessible due to its characteristic sheer cliffs that drop straight down, thousands of feet into the ocean.

Reticulation1837 viewsI couldn't get these Zebras to look at me so I had to settle for their butts. The pattern of black and white reminded me of a process in film developing called "Reticulation" where tiny cracks are formed in the films emulsion.

Makana Peak1835 viewsBali Hai Or Makana Peak as the Hawaiians call it, was used in the movie South Pacific. In ancient times, men would climb the peak carrying special spears made of Hau and Papala. When darkness fell, they would light the speers and throw them into the ocean below.

Skycrane1833 viewsThe Sikorsky "Skycrane" was originally designed for the military. It has interchangeable pods for a variety of uses. We were particularly interested in the water tank pod today. It can hold 2,650 Gallons of water and you see it here, dumping all 2,650 Gallons on the fire as it moves up Sunset Ridge.

Honu’ea1832 viewsTaken 4/7/06
Honu’ea or Hawksbill Turtle is native to Hawai’i. The species is considered to be endangered but is slowly growing thanks to conservation efforts particularly on the Big Island of Hawai’i where they are protected by law. The Hawksbill can grow up to 250 pounds and feeds mostly on green sea moss or sponges. Their nesting period runs from July to October. Building the nest and laying eggs takes several hours and they can easily be seen along the coast.
