Our first park of the day was Kaloko-Honokohau NP north of Kailua-Kona by the small boat marina. The visitor center is very small.

It was a 45 mInute flight from ...

... Because of the spalting that is commonly present, the wood can be a kaleidoscope of colors. Under normal circumstances, heartwood is a golden brown, while other colors such as yellow and streaks of pink and/or black can also occur. Paler sapwood is not always clearly defined.
