After a weekend of music, lessons, and lū’au, Cyril and a small group of friends set off to hike to the HI‘ilawe waterfall. This was not going to be just a hike up and back. It included guitars, video cameras, and a tape recorder, all wrapped in industrial black plastic bags.
On arriving at the waterfall, Cyril immediately perched on a large boulder at the base and repeatedly sang to his muse. From where he sat, Cyril could feel the spray and mist from the main part of Hi‘ilawe Falls as it dropped the 1,300 feet after its initial drop of 150 feet.
