Upper Halawa

Upper Halawa gulch, in windward Kohala. Several sets of loi were constructed in this gulch approximately 400 years ago, and back then this place would have been sunny and open, with nodding beds of taro leaves in every corner. Today this narrow gulch is shaded by a creaking forest of shaggy-barked eucalyptus, and its floor is a fragrant nest of ginger flowers. Malama ‘aina.
