Yesterday, Josh and I went and wandered around Waimea Valley on the North Shore of Oahu. Waimea Valley is a historical nature park consisting of many botanical gardens which contain numerous rare and endangered species of plants. The garden valley is approximately .75 miles in length and has a waterfall and swimming hole at the end. It was a gorgeous day and we enjoyed walking around the different gardens and seeing the waterfall at the end. I also had my first ono pop…which was amazing!

So many coconuts on this tree!
‘Alae ‘ula Bird. It had a unique red shield on it’s face.

Pretty flowers in the tree.
Thanks to Kalani and our Flower Farm tour, we both knew these were red gingers!

A very old piece of a tree of a species that will soon be distinct as there are only 26 left in the world and they are all fruitless and unable to reproduce.
