Jean recommended Rainbow falls, less than five minutes away. We notice it is also located right next door to Yukio Okutsu State Veterans Home where Dad is staying. What a nice coincidence. Since we can't get in to see Dad until tomorrow, I slather on my Terra Shield and we head for the falls.
The parking lot of the falls is scattered with a few chickens and cats that look as though they have coexisted here their entire life. Stepping out of the car, we can hear the sound of the waterfall crashing down. Not more than ten feet from our car we can see the top of Rainbow Falls. Wow! Now this is what I think of when I think of Hawaii. Although, most waterfalls require a hike through the jungle to see, this one is close at hand. Even someone in a wheelchair could enjoy these majestic falls.

Continuing back on the trail, we come to the top of the falls. Childhood memories of rock hopping through the Cimarron Canyon fill my head as I stare out over the river that pours into the falls, A smile stretches across my face as I take in the beauty of my surroundings. God is Amazing!
