ABOVE HAWAII--Oahu

Waimea Falls, 55 feet high, drops amid the lush foliage of the valley of the same name that in Captain Cook's time was the home of thousands of Hawaiians. Later, disease and a ravaging flood killed off much of the population. Currently the falls is the focus of a park also having an arboretum and botanical gardens.
