We rode our bikes 3 miles to the trailhead and hiked 1400 vertical feet to get a gorgeous view of the lagoon, mountain and surrounding islands. You can see Bora Bora in the distance.
Spring flowers abound on this hike!
It’s definitely spring here as everything is in bloom!
The ubiquitous red hibiscus flower provides protection from "evil spirits" in French Polynesia. The lagoon makes a pretty impressive background for this gorgeous flower.
Gorgeous wild orchid
That's all for now...
