  Looking down the koolau Mountain Range
by bryINpoland

In 1795, King Kamehameha defeated the armies of Oahu when he pushed them over the cliffs at Nuuanu Pali. In 1897 when old pali road was being built (the first road to connect the windward side of Oahu with the leward side, via the koolau mountains) construction workers found over 800 human remains at the base of the cliff.

Today there is a new road built that goes through the mountain instead of over. the old pali road is now a state park with a lookout that overlooks the windward side of Oahu.

The old road still remains, and u may walk down the old road for some great shots looking down on the town of Kaneohe. Check out my old pali road link...OLD PALI ROAD
