Akaka Falls State Park - Big Island Hawaii

Pictures enlarge if you click on them.

While Catherine and I were on the Big Island of Hawaii, we went to Akaka Falls State Park, a state park in Hawaii, located 11 miles north of the city of Hilo. It includes Akaka Falls, a 442 ft. tall waterfall.


On the way to Akaka State Park we saw this banana tree with a blossom along side of the road.


Also along the way we saw some pastures with cows.







Akaka Falls is in a rainforest on the east side of the Big Island. There is a paved walking path through the forest that leads to the waterfall.

Along the path we saw addition banana trees that were in blossom. I have seen banana trees before, but I believe this trip was the first time I saw one in bloom.
