Kealia Trail

After a long winter break from Tree Hugging, we ventured out for a hike. On Saturday January 25, 2014 the tree huggers hiked up to the picnic table on Kealia Trail.

 It was a nice and cool winter day. The 'anunu (Sicyos hispidus) was flourishing and the Wiliwili (Erythrina sandwicensis) leaves were nice dark green.

However, some of the Wiliwili seemed to still be under attack by the invasive gall wasp (see the link below for more info about the gall wasp).
Mr Horstman flexed his tree muscles and lifted a really big log!

Tree Huggers found lots of creatures along the way that included caterpillars, ladybugs, grasshoppers, butterflies, and spiders.

Ellis and Allyson showed their tree hugger pride!

Thanks to Donald's grandpa for being a chaperone and Mrs. T for letting us use her van to transport the tree huggers! See you in February!
