This is the thickest, most mature, forest in the radar image. Here we are just past the turn-off to the Park (heading south), with the forest on the north side of the road. Most of the scene shows mature ohia ~15 - 20 meters high. Note that there is a very dense firn under-story and that there are some "exotic" tress within the stand. From here you can continue on to Site 31 or you can pick another point from the Radar Tour page.
