Garden of the Gods
Keahiakawelo & Kaioluhoiia (Garden of the Gods & Shipreck Beach) Setting forth in a four wheeler with a guide, we entered Keahiawelo (Garden of the Gods). Keahiakawelo is known for its colorful and unique rock formations, scorched by ancient eruptions and carved by nature over time. (second row, left) Our guide pointed out one formation that he thought looked like a gorilla. Leaving Keahiakawelo, we went on to Kaioluhoia (Shipwreck Beach). Although many ships have been lost in the treacherous Kalohi Channel between Lana'i and Moloka'i, this one was purposely grounded on this coral reef by the US Navy. It is one of 22 ferrous-concrete oilers built in the early 1940s.
