A few twists and turns from the Waipio Lookout, and we’d made our way closer to Hilo and at the tourist point Akaka Falls.
We paid our five bucks for the car full. Fair price for a state park, I figured as I followed the attendant’s instructions at the big meter and was handed the paper receipt from he machine.
Right off you could see the falls off in the distance. The path ran through lush rain forest land.
The walk was worth it.
As a veteran of Niagara Falls, I’d say Hawaii’s cascade brings its own variety of natural beauty. High and narrow, it’s a pipeline of fascinating plummet.
I felt the need to take selfie-duo falls shots with everybody in my party.
