Down at Mystical Iao Valley

It is a narrow valley shadowed by towering mountains on both sides. It is a very special place for the local people here as a great war was fought at this place that claimed many lives. The place is a tropical rainforest that has a higher rainfall than the rest of the island. The people playing in the river are college students.
We were caught in a shower and had to wait for it to stop before we could venture into the valley. There is a group of college students there too

The mountain behind me is known as the Iao Needle, but the local believed it to be the phallic stone of the Hawaiian ocean god, Kanalo.
