Nuuanu Pali, the greatest scenic
wonder in Hawaii!
The wonderful combination of
beautiful cloud effects with steep
precipices, green lowlands, hills of
red and green, and ocean waters of
varied colors and vivid tones make
this bit of Hawaiian landscape the
rapture of nature lovers. Its im-
mensity is overwhelming and its
grandeur is awe-inspiring.
In 1795 the great King Kame-
haineha conquered his enemies and
in order not to be humiliated by sur-
rendering themselves the defeated
army of Oahuans flung themselves
over this precipice of twelve hundred
feet in height to the valley below.
"Lovely Honolulu, you're the home
of the moon,
I weave love dreams so tender
'Neath the moonbeams splendor.
When the daylight hours flee
Memories come back to me;
Fascinating Honolulu, you're the
home of the moon."
