A hidden fall in Akaka Falls State Park (Photo: zeroorone)

A small waterfall on the big island of Hawaii, recorded by Toby Mountain for his CD A Week in Hawaii.



GELLERMAN: We leave you this week amid a mist: fine droplets floating from a waterfall. The Akaka Falls on the east coast of the big island of Hawaii get all the attention: they plunge more than 400 feet into a gorge. But follow a narrow path through the jungle and you’ll find a much smaller cascade feeding a stream beneath a wooden bridge. Toby Mountain recorded its soothing sounds for his CD, A Week in Hawaii.

[SOUND: Toby Mountain “Waterfall – A Week In Hawaii (Rykodisc 1987)]
