THE SCENERY OF KA'IWI AND WAIMANALO

The Waimanalo Beach Area

 

Looking north towards Kailua, we see some spectacular jagged peaks that have been heavily eroded by the large amount of rainfall on Windward Oahu. In the middle of this shot is Olomana, which is a sequence of lava flows that became trapped in the old Koolau caldera, and were more resistant to erosion than the surrounding talus (rock fragments). Notice also the fishing pond in the lower right. Click here to go to the next stop along the Beach.
