North Oahu – Waimea Valley

If you drive around the island passed Diamond Head, Koko Crater, Kaneohe Bay and keep on going, you eventually get to Sunset Beach and then Waimea Valley.  There is a waterfall and park in the valley, but we didn’t have the time to go inside.  So we asked the guard at the parking gate if we could walk around the grounds near the shop and restaurant to capture a few images.  There were some beautiful peacocks resting on the lawn.  This big one let me walk right up behind him.  Only after several images did he decide to get up and wander off.  The colors in these birds are spectacular.
