Bamboo Forest

The Pipiwai Trail in the Haleakala National Park at Oheo Gulch has a section of dense Bamboo.  The park has tried to make the hike a little easier by putting in steps seen here and walkways in many of the wet and muddy areas.

Baby Bamboo

The Pipiwai trail hike is located in the Haleakala National Park at Oheo Gulch. It is a 4 mile round trip hike up a valley to the falls.  On the way you walk through a bamboo forest so thick you rarely see sunshine.  I happened upon these baby bamboo plants just as the sun hit them.  I have other shots of the forest and the falls which I’ll post later but wanted to show how this simple shot turned out.
