#CatTravels: Exploring Kipahulu

“Hike to the magical bamboo forest.”

That was my directive from a friend of mine who had recently visited Hana.

She didn’t do it, but she had heard about it. And since she called it “magical,” I had to see it now.

So even before we started the long drive down Hana Highway to the small coastal town in Maui, I had planned to find the bamboo forest, located on the trail to the 400-foot Waimoku Falls in Kipahulu, a half-hour drive from Hana.

Then I booked a tour of Ono Farms, a 300-acre organic farm that offers fruit tasting, and decided we were going to spend our second day in Hana exploring the outdoors in Kipahulu.

Derek had no choice.

Here’s what it all looked like:

First things first

We had a big day ahead, so we needed to fuel up. We went down to Kau'iki Restaurant for breakfast, which included this French toast made with homemade bread.

    Hmmmm…. Derek had no choice…. interesting. That an the new movie not yet filmed called Crouching Lion. It is the one they are going to make based on the success of the Prequel Crouching Tiger. :)

    Got to say these were some of my favorite pics ever. And have no idea why, probably cause I am a country boy and this was definitely in the country. Country food with the French Toast and bacon. And I love a good waterfall.

    The fruit looks awesome, wish I had some mango.

      I heard Crouching Lion, Hidden Dragon will take place on a mystical island, called O’ahu. LOL

    Wasn’t Crouching Lion the name of the place up the road from Kaaawa? Seem to remember a Sunday breakfast buffet there.
