N is for Nāhuku

Nāhuku is the Hawaiian name for Thurston Lava Tube in Volcanoes National Park here on Hawaiʻi Island. It’s one of my favorite locations in the park because it’s located within a lush rain forest area. The native birds chirp away happily in the trees and every so often, mist will move through the area, depositing moisture onto everything in its path. Walking thru Nāhuku, the temperature drops considerably, but there is serenity in the darkness and in hearing the sound of every step bouncing of the walls of the cave. In no time, eyes adjust and the native foliage bend to welcome you back to the light.
