Akaka Falls State Park on the Hamakua Coast is a rain forest with densely packed foliage providing the backdrop for the famous Akaka Falls. A 442 foot waterfall awaits you as you casually walk through the rain forest on a short .4 mile paved trail. As you peak out of the rain forest foliage, you will feast your eyes on the falls. However when I hiked through the forest to the falls, I was greeted by low, white clouds and fog. I set in for a patient stand off with Mother Nature. I waited for about 30 minutes for the low clouds to dissapate enough to take some photos of the falls.
