Land That Time Forgot

As I neared the bottom of a steep muddy trail leading to the base of Wailua Falls a thunderous roar of the waterfall filled the air. The gigantic waterfall forces water down a 115 feet drop creating a thick misty breeze circulating through on the base of the falls. It's hard to believe that Hawaiian men would jump from the top of the falls to prove their manhood. If you look closely at this picture you will see the man standing at the top of the fall just to the left between the trees. I normally don't include people in my photography but I thought this would give some perspective on the size of Wailua Falls.
