A few weeks ago I travelled north from south of Adelaide to visit the Gammon Ranges in South Australia… incredible desert country free of humans sometimes as far as the eye can see in all directions..
Early morning, blue skies, gentle breeze, fresh smells as the forest of ohios awakes…bird song bouncing through the tree tops. We’re prepared …chocolate, water and walking stick. The trail is damp from overnight rain, rocky and in some places steep. The colors are luminescent, shiny bright….
Mauna kea glimpsed through the forest canopy.
Beneath the towering heights of the Pali a beautiful botanic park lies….plants, animals and birds…on the windward side of Oahu….
Its name means to “make a place of peace and tranquility….

A beautiful fragrance….??
Red seal bamboo…
