To make matters worse, we probably would have stopped driving the Hana Highway sooner, but we wanted to get to a really cool waterfall that our tour book showed call Blue Pond. Well, the road was flooded at one point since a stream was flowing over it. So we waded through a foot of water to cross, then walked the remaining 1.5 miles or so. Along the way we:
- Got bit by a lot of mosquitos.
- Saw a wild one-eyed dog walking along the path with his bigger brother or dad (and that was after we saw the tied up pit bull).
- Saw lots of No Trespassing signs, which by the presence of the neighboring shacks and rusted out cars, signaled that death by aboriginee shotgun would follow if violated.
- Got to the end to realize we had no way of getting to the waterfall since the river that dumps into the ocean at the base of the waterfall had really high water levels that day.
The really only impressive part of the trip was seeing a spider (pictured top left) at a roadside gift stand that Missy could only describe as the "most gnarliest and disgusting thing" she's ever seen. I leave it up to the reader to decide if she's right. But I agree with her.
