Maui: Pipiwai Trail (part 2)

Continuing the trek up the Pipiwai Trail, from past the banyan tree but not all the way up to the big Waimoku Falls.

Hey, it's the trail itself.

Looking down from the bridge

This butterfly perched right below me while crossing the bridge.







Past the bamboo forest the foliage turns to this.
