Konahuanui is the tallest peak on the Ko’olau range. (3,150 feet above sea level). It is a majestic landmark that graces Windward Oahu as it stands tall, like a guardian, at the dramatic Pali Pass, cutting through the mountain.

just over the horizon perhaps or somewhere on the way.

and Color is a universal language.
