"Viewed from off-shore, the numerous deeply eroded valleys on the north shore of Kohala volcano are spectacular! In this rare almost cloud-free scene, we can see Waipio Valley at left and Waimanu Valley at right. At the back of the valleys, these are more than 800 meters deep. Notice that even the more gentle slopes of the volcano in between Waipio and Waimanu is starting to be eroded."
