Lake Wai'ele'ele - Figure 6    
Fig 6. Lake Wai‘ele‘ele. A) Of two ways to reach the lake, the fastest is by helicopter. The alternative is a hike through rainforest and up 6500 ft. B) The lake is located in a hollow and surrounded by trees. The lake edge literally floats on the saturated ground, and the shore ‘undulated’ as we approached. C) Buoyant mats are anchored to the lake bed. D) A couple of hundred meters like this takes you back to the helicopter. The ground is saturated with water, yet Ron Nagata (Haleakala National Park Superintendent) and Terry (our HNP field guide) each said the area was drier than they’d seen it for years! [back]
