Beautiful Falls (Sacred Falls)

My husband and I were in Hawaii 1952-1954. He was stationed at Hickham AFB. We hiked to the falls with friends. Over streams and up and down hills we went.

Such a beautiful trip.

At the falls all went into the pool for a swim except me. I can't swim, but I sat on the side and watched.

Such a warm, gorgeous place to be.

And truly sacred.

I hear it was not to be turned into a tourist place ever but obviously it was, after we left Hawaii. Hence the landslide maybe. The Gods were angry.

When we were there it was a pristine place as though we were the only ones who had ever visited. It will always be a wonderful memory.

Pictures of the falls

Surely there are pictures of Sacred Falls taken before the disaster. I would love to see them. We didn't take a camera when we went and oh how I wish we had. I would love to see the pool and the base area of the falls.
