Local Snapshots

The Mindanao gum tree, also known as rainbow eucalyptus, has a unique multi-hued bark. Patches of outer bark shed at different times, showing a bright green inner bark. This then darkens and matures, developing blue, purple, orange and maroon tones. The tree hugged by Halli Holmgren is part of a small forest up at Wailua Arboretum.

A good snapshot may reveal a simple pleasure that otherwise goes unnoticed. The Local Snapshots is just a tiny collection of what Kaua‘i offers to locals and visitors. Indulge yourself. And if you have any suggestions or pictures, send it to editor@forKaua‘ionline.com.
