I am 52 to years old, and I still get emotional seeing pictures and videos of Sacred Falls.
I was stationed on Oahu between 1979 and 1981, while in the Navy.
When I went to Scared Falls with my friends, I thought the hike was a bit of a hassle until I started getting closer to the falls. Passion fruit trees abounded all around me, I picked an arm load of passion fruit and ate them as we progressed into the valley toward the falls.
When the trees cleared, I looked upon the falls for the first time, and felt awe as I’ve never experienced before, even in all the beauty I’ve seen on the Hawaiian Islands.
I truly felt that I was in a sacred place.
