THE SCENERY OF KAIWI AND WAIMANALO

It is rare to see Koko Crater (the cone in the background) as green as it is in this 1988 photo (taken Christmas Day!), but that year Oahu had a lot of rain. You will see in our other photos that the cone is normally much more brown than this. In the lower left of this picture is Hanauma Bay, which is one of the most popular tourist beaches in Hawaii. See the next picture for a detailed look at the coral reef and the beach.
