Desert Five Spot1750 viewsThis delicate purple flower is named for the five red spots which can be seen inside the round bloom. The information I read implied that this was a rare desert flower. The very wet winter brough out quite a few of these flowers.

Waipi'o Valley1736 viewsTaken 4/2/06
Located on the Northeast side of the Big Island of Hawai’i, the Waipi’o Valley is a plush green area of the island that receives annual rainfall of over 200 inches per year. Access to the Valley Floor was over an exciting 4WD Road with a 25% Grade that drops almost 1000 feet in about a mile. It was well worth renting the Jeep Cherokee at the airport. Once at the bottom you are treated to a beautiful mile long Black Sand Beach.
