This post continues details of our driving tour of Kohala, which we enjoyed on our fourth day on the island of Hawaii (Thursday, May 20th). Our first stop was at Manini’owali Beach. Our second stop was in Kawaihae at the Pu’Ukohola Heiau National Historic Site. Our third stop was at Lapakahi State Historical Park. Our fourth stop was at King Kamehameha’s birthplace. Our fifth stop was at the Pololu Valley Lookout.
Returning onto Route 270 from King Kamehameha’s birthplace, we traveled through the towns of Hawi and Kapaau to the Pololu Valley Lookout. Route 270 ends at the lookout. Pololu Valley Lookout provides a spectacular view of the coast and cliffs, lush with vegetation, rising out of the ocean.
There is one way to Pololu Valley Lookout and one way out — Route 270. As we were traveling along Route 270 towards Kapaau, we saw a strange sight indeed!
These feet and shoes were sticking out of a hole alongside Route 270. I don’t know the reasoning for this “exhibit”. This picture reminds me of the scene in “Alice in Wonderland” when Alice falls into the rabbit hole.
Next stop: Kapaau
