From the North Shore of Oahu, drive east from Haleiwa, and turn up Pupukea Road. Follow the signs for the Pu'u O Mahuka heiau, and enjoy the spectacular view of Waimea Bay. If you happen to find a gecko hiding among the leaves, say hello for me.
Hosting guests this past weekend, I took them on my standard circle island tour, which includes an overlook of Waimea Bay from a path down from the Pu'u O Mahuka heiau. While standing at the overlook, I noticed movement among the leaves of a plant at my feet. Tucked among them was this gecko, who didn't flee despite multiple flash photos attempting to capture him.
