The plan was go up the mountain… but they didn’t let us… so we went around.
They closed the mountain because of snow and ice, so we decided to take a small dirt road accessible by 4wd only.
This is the same road we played on, on a previous day. So thus we were back on the road.
Probably one of my favorite places on the island and for sure one of the least traveled areas of the island.
You’ll also see some pictures of the north east coast of the island where we went later in the day.
You’ll recognize it as the places with water, ocean, waterfalls etc.

yes that’s snow… yes it’s hawaii
Let’s just say that a rental jeep can go more places than a regular jeep can go.
So what’s the deal with the loner cow?
This is the Nene, the state bird of Hawaii.
They don’t fly, well at least they didn’t feel like flying away from me.
Look at this feller just posing for me!
Up on the road
Waipio valley is spectacular. It’s a gorgeous area and I’m sure there is so much to be seen and discovered there.
A 4wd is a must.
Oh did I mention that the people that claimed the land after a tidal wave took out the previous residents are not nice people.
In fact they really don’t want people there.
It really should be a national park kick out all those people that squatted on the land and are jerks to all the visitors.
