Bamboo is a non native species in Hawaii that flourishes in windward areas. Prolific bamboo forests are evident all along the road to Hana. Just to the east of Haiku is a great little bamboo forest hike. Between the tranquility of the forest, a cool stream and a few beautiful waterfalls, it is always a pleasure to head out on this trail. With a friend in from out of town yesterday, I was able to sneak out into the country for a quick hike.
I wish I could claim these pictures as my own. Instead they were taken by Daniel Sullivan. Daniel is a talented photographer who sells his photos at Indigo Paia.
