Manoa Valley, Manoa Falls

Here are some photos from our day in Manoa Valley, Oahu. Locals said they film the tv show "Lost" near the Manoa falls. Never having seen the show, I don't know if any of the scenes will be familiar to some of you....

below: 2 guys on the trail had captured Jackson's chameleons, a non-native species that had escaped into the environment from a pet store. The horned head indicates that this is a male.
