Destination: Number two out of five, Koko Crater Botanical Garden takes up the 60-acre basin of Koko Crater in the south east corner of Oahu. Because of the hot, dry climate here the primary focus is a dryland collection of plants from the Americas and Africa. Stepping into this crater is like walking into a mini desert. It’s delightfully overcast today. I can imagine it getting pretty hot and toasty when the sun is shining.
Focus: Botanical Garden
Soundtrack for the drive: Tracy Bonham, Blink the Brightest
Quote of the Day: Look up, look up, look all around you. Can’t you see the love that surrounds the very soul of you? ~ T-Bo Fine
I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon than ambling the two mile path that circles the inside of Koko Crater. It’s possible that makin’ love in the green grass would beat it but at this precise moment I’m not convinced. First up is the Plumeria grove and I could stay in this spot for hours. I’ve taken at least 37 pictures of the same type of flower and it’s not getting old.
