A kayak is a small, narrow watercraft, propelled by means of a double-bladed paddle. The word kayak originates from the Greenlandic word qajaq; the traditional kayak has one or more cockpits, each seating one paddler. The cockpit is sometimes covered by a spray deck that prevents the entry of water from waves or spray, differentiating the craft from a canoe; the spray deck makes it possible for suitably skilled kayakers to roll the kayak: that is, to capsize and right it without it filling with water or ejecting the paddler. Some modern boats vary from a traditional design but still claim the title "kayak", for instance in eliminating the cockpit by seating the paddler on top of the boat. Kayaks are being sailed, as well as propelled by means of small electric motors, by outboard gas engines; the kayak was first used by the indigenous Aleut, Inuit and Ainu hunters in subarctic regions of the world. Kayaks were developed by the Inuit, Yup'ik, Aleut, they used the boats to hunt on inland lakes and coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean, North Atlantic, Bering Sea and North Pacific oceans.
These first kayaks were constructed from stitched seal or other animal skins stretched over a wood or whalebone-skeleton frame.. Kayaks are believed to be at least 4,000 years old; the oldest existing kayaks are exhibited in the North America department of the State Museum of Ethnology in Munich, with the oldest dating from 1577. Native people made many types of boat for different purposes; the Aleut baidarka was made in double or triple cockpit designs, for hunting and transporting passengers or goods. An umiak is a large open sea canoe, ranging from 17 to 30 feet, made with wood, it is considered a kayak although it was paddled with single-bladed paddles, had more than one paddler. Native builders designed and built their boats based on their own experience and that of the generations before them, passed on through oral tradition; the word "kayak" means "man's boat" or "hunter's boat", native kayaks were a personal craft, each built by the man who used it—with assistance from his wife, who sewed the skins—and fitting his size for maximum maneuverability.
The paddler wore a tuilik, a garment, stretched over the rim of the kayak coaming, sealed with drawstrings at the coaming and hood edges. This enabled the "eskimo roll" and rescue to become the preferred methods of recovery after capsizing as few Inuit could swim. Instead of a tuilik, most traditional kayakers today use a spray deck made of waterproof synthetic material stretchy enough to fit around the cockpit rim and body of the kayaker, which can be released from the cockpit to permit easy exit. Inuit kayak builders had specific measurements for their boats; the length was three times the span of his outstretched arms. The width at the cockpit was the width of the builder's hips plus two fists; the typical depth was his fist plus the outstretched thumb. Thus typical dimensions were about 17 feet long by 20–22 inches wide by 7 inches deep; this measurement system confounded early European explorers who tried to duplicate the kayak, because each kayak was a little different. Traditional kayaks encompass three types: Baidarkas, from the Bering sea & Aleutian islands, the oldest design, whose rounded shape and numerous chines give them an Blimp-like appearance.
Most of the Aleut people in the Aleutian Islands eastward to Greenland Inuit relied on the kayak for hunting a variety of prey—primarily seals, though whales and caribou were important in some areas. Skin-on-frame kayaks are still being used for hunting by Inuit people in Greenland, because the smooth and flexible skin glides silently through the waves. In other parts of the world home builders are continuing the tradition of skin on frame kayaks with modern skins of canvas or synthetic fabric, such as sc. ballistic nylon. Contemporary traditional-style kayaks trace their origins to the native boats of Alaska, northern Canada, Southwest Greenland. Wooden kayaks and fabric kayaks on wooden frames dominated the market up until the 1950s, when fiberglass boats were first introduced in the US, inflatable rubberized fabric boats were first introduced in Europe. Rotomolded plastic kayaks first appeared in 1973, most kayaks today are made from roto-molded polyethylene resins; the development of plastic and rubberized inflatable kayaks arguably initiated the development of freestyle kayaking as we see it today, since these boats could be made smaller and more resilient than fiberglass boats.
Kayak design is a matter of trade-offs: directional stability vs maneuverability. Multihull kayaks face a different set of trade-offs; the paddler's body shap
The cherry tomato is a type of small round tomato believed to be an intermediate genetic admixture between wild currant-type tomatoes and domesticated garden tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes range in size from a thumbtip up to the size of a golf ball, can range from spherical to oblong in shape. Although red, other varieties such as yellow and black exist; those shaped like an oblong share characteristics with plum tomatoes and are known as grape tomatoes. The berry tomato is regarded as a botanical variety of the cultivated berry, Solanum lycopersicum var. cerasiforme. Cherry tomatoes are believed to have been cultivated by the Aztecs in Mexico in the 15th century; the first tomatoes grown in Europe were yellow cherry tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes have been popular in the United States since at least 1919. Recipes using cherry tomatoes can be found in articles dating back to 1967; the Tomaccio tomato was developed by Nahum Kedar and Chaim Rabinovitch of the Agriculture Faculty of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on its Rehovot Campus.
It is the result of a 12-year breeding program using wild Peruvian tomato species to create a sweet snack tomato with improved ripening time and shelf life. The Super Sweet 100 is a hybrid cultivar popular in the United States resistant to both Fusarium and Verticillium wilt; the Selke Biodynamic cherry tomato is named after Margrit Selke. The indeterminate hybrid sungold cherry tomato is known for its vigorous early-yielding plants and colorful orange fruits.

Kauaʻi, anglicized as Kauai, is geologically the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands. With an area of 562.3 square miles, it is the fourth-largest of these islands and the 21st largest island in the United States. Known as the "Garden Isle", Kauaʻi lies 105 miles across the Kauaʻi Channel, northwest of Oʻahu; this island is the site of Waimea Canyon State Park. The United States Census Bureau defines Kauaʻi as census tracts 401 through 409 of Kauai County, Hawaiʻi, which comprises all of the county except for the islands of Kaʻula, Lehua and Niʻihau; the 2010 United States Census population of the island was 67,091. The most populous town was Kapaʻa. In 1778, Captain James Cook arrived at Waimea Bay, the first European known to have reached the Hawaiʻian islands, he named the archipelago after his patron the 6th Earl of George Montagu. During the reign of King Kamehameha, the islands of Kauaʻi and Niʻihau were the last Hawaiʻian Islands to join his Kingdom of Hawaiʻi, their ruler, Kaumualiʻi, resisted Kamehameha for years.
King Kamehameha twice prepared a huge armada of ships and canoes to take the islands by force, twice failed. In the face of the threat of a further invasion, Kaumualiʻi decided to join the kingdom without bloodshed, became Kamehameha's vassal in 1810, he ceded the island to the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi upon his death in 1824. In 1815, a ship from the Russian-American Company was wrecked on the island. In 1816, an agreement was signed by Kaumualiʻi to allow the Russians to build Fort Elizabeth, it was an attempt by Kaumuali’i to gain support from the Russians against Kamehameha I. Construction was begun in 1817, but in July of that year under mounting resistance of Native Hawaiians and American traders the Russians were expelled; the settlement on Kauai has been considered an abrupt instance of a Pacific outpost of the Russian Empire per se. Valdemar Emil Knudsen was a Norwegian plantation pioneer who arrived on Kauai in 1857. Knudsen, or "Kanuka" arrived in Koloa where he managed Grove Farm, but sought a warmer land and purchased the leases to Mana and Kekaha, where he became a successful sugarcane plantation owner.
Knudsen settled in Waiawa, between Mana and Kekaha across the channel from Niʻihau Island. His son, Eric Alfred Knudsen, was born in Waiawa. Knudsen was appointed land administrator by King Kamehameha for an area covering 400 km2, was given the title konohiki as well as a position as a nobility under the king. Knudsen, who spoke fluent Hawaiian became an elected representative and an influential politician on the island. Knudsen lends his name to the Knudsen Gap, a narrow pass between the Kahili Ridge, its primary function was as a sugar farm planted by the Knudsen family. In 1835, Old Koloa Town opened a sugar mill. From 1906 to 1934 the office of County Clerk was held by John Mahiʻai Kāneakua, active in attempts to restore Queen Liliuokalani to the throne after the United States takeover of Hawaiʻi in 1893. Hawaiian narrative locates the name's origin in the legend of Hawaiʻiloa, the Polynesian navigator credited with discovery of the Hawaiʻian Islands; the story relates. Another possible translation is "food season".
Kauaʻi was known for its distinct dialect of the Hawaiian language. While the standard language today adopts the dialect of Hawaiʻi island, which has the sound, the Kauaʻi dialect was known for pronouncing this as. In effect, Kauaʻi dialect retained the old pan-Polynesian /t/, while "standard" Hawaiʻi dialect has changed it to the. Therefore, the native name for Kauaʻi was said as Tauaʻi, the major settlement of Kapaʻa would have been pronounced as Tapaʻa. Kauaʻi's origins are volcanic, the island having been formed by the passage of the Pacific Plate over the Hawaii hotspot. At five million years old, it is the oldest of the main islands; the highest peak on this mountainous island is Kawaikini at 5,243 feet. The second highest peak is Mount Waiʻaleʻale near the center of the island, 5,148 ft above sea level. One of the wettest spots on earth, with an annual average rainfall of 460 inches, is located on the east side of Mount Waiʻaleʻale; the high annual rainfall has eroded deep valleys in the central mountains, carving out canyons with many scenic waterfalls.
On the west side of the island, Waimea town is located at the mouth of the Waimea River, whose flow formed Waimea Canyon, one of the world's most scenic canyons, part of Waimea Canyon State Park. At three thousand feet deep, Waimea Canyon is referred to as "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific". Kokeo Point lies on the south side of the island; the Na Pali Coast is a center for recreation in a wild setting, including kayaking past the beaches, or hiking on the trail along the coastal cliffs. The headland, Kuahonu Point, is on the south-east of the island. Kauaʻi’s climate is tropical, with humid and stable conditions year round, although weather phenomena and infrequent storms have caused instances of extreme weather. At the lower elevations the annual precipitation varies from an average of about 50 inches on the windward shore, to less than 20 inches on the leeward side of the island. Average temperature in Lihu'e, the county seat, ranges from 78 °F in February to 85 °F in August and September. Kauaʻi’s mountainous regions offer cooler temperatures and provide a pleasant contrast to the warm coastal areas.

The Hawaiian Islands are an archipelago of eight major islands, several atolls, numerous smaller islets, seamounts in the North Pacific Ocean, extending some 1,500 miles from the island of Hawaiʻi in the south to northernmost Kure Atoll. The group was known to Europeans and Americans as the Sandwich Islands, a name chosen by James Cook in honor of the First Lord of the Admiralty John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich; the contemporary name is derived from the name of Hawaii Island. The U. S. state of Hawaii now occupies the archipelago in its entirety, with the sole exception of Midway Island, which instead separately belongs to the United States as one of its unincorporated territories within the United States Minor Outlying Islands. The Hawaiian Islands are the exposed peaks of a great undersea mountain range known as the Hawaiian–Emperor seamount chain, formed by volcanic activity over a hotspot in the Earth's mantle; the islands are about 1,860 miles from the nearest continent. Captain James Cook visited the islands on January 18, 1778, named them the "Sandwich Islands" in honor of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, one of his sponsors as the First Lord of the Admiralty.
This name was in use until the 1840s, when the local name "Hawaii" began to take precedence. The Hawaiian Islands have a total land area of 6,423.4 square miles. Except for Midway, an unincorporated territory of the United States, these islands and islets are administered as Hawaii—the 50th state of the United States; the eight main islands of Hawaii are listed here. All except Kahoolawe are inhabited. Smaller islands and reefs form the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, or Hawaiian Leeward Islands: Nihoa Necker French Frigate Shoals Gardner Pinnacles Maro Reef Laysan Lisianski Island Pearl and Hermes Atoll Midway Atoll Kure Atoll The state of Hawaii counts 137 "islands" in the Hawaiian chain; this number includes all minor islands and islets, or small islands, offshore of the main islands and individual islets in each atoll. These are just a few: Ford Island Lehua Ka'ula Kaohikaipu Mānana Mōkōlea Rock Nā Mokulua Molokini Mokoliʻi Moku Manu Moku Ola Moku o Loʻe Sand Island Grass Island This chain of islands, or archipelago, developed as the Pacific Plate moved northwestward over a hotspot in the Earth's mantle at a rate of 32 miles per million years.
Thus, the southeast island is volcanically active, whereas the islands on the northwest end of the archipelago are older and smaller, due to longer exposure to erosion. The age of the archipelago has been estimated using potassium-argon dating methods. From this study and others, it is estimated that the northwesternmost island, Kure Atoll, is the oldest at 28 million years; the only active volcanism in the last 200 years has been on the southeastern island, Hawaiʻi, on the submerged but growing volcano to the extreme southeast, Loʻihi. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory of the USGS documents recent volcanic activity and provides images and interpretations of the volcanism. Kīlauea has been erupting nearly continuously since 1983. All of the magma of the hotspot has the composition of basalt, so the Hawaiian volcanoes are composed entirely of this igneous rock. There is little coarser-grained gabbro and diabase. Nephelinite is exposed on the islands but is rare; the majority of eruptions in Hawaiʻi are Hawaiian-type eruptions because basaltic magma is fluid compared with magmas involved in more explosive eruptions, such as the andesitic magmas that produce some of the spectacular and dangerous eruptions around the margins of the Pacific basin.
Hawaiʻi island is the youngest island in the chain, built from five volcanoes. Mauna Loa, taking up over half of the Big Island, is the largest shield volcano on the Earth; the measurement from sea level to summit is more than 2.5 miles, from sea level to sea floor about 3.1 miles.. The Hawaiian Islands have many earthquakes caused by volcanic activity. Most of the early earthquake monitoring took place in Hilo, by missionaries Titus Coan, Sarah J. Lyman and her family. From 1833 to 1896 4 or 5 earthquakes were reported per year. Hawaii accounted for 7.3% of the United States' reported earthquakes with a magnitude 3.5 or greater from 1974 to 2003, with a total 1533 earthquakes. Hawaii ranked as the state with the third most earthquakes over this time period, after Alaska and California. On October 15, 2006, there was an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.7 off the northwest coast of the island of Hawaii, near the Kona area of the big island. The initial earthquake was followed five minutes by a magnitude 5.7 aftershock.
Minor-to-moderate damage was reported on most of the Big Island. Several major roadways became impassable from rock slides, effects were felt as far away as Honolulu, nearly 150 miles from the epicenter. Power outages lasted for several hours to days. Several water mains ruptured. No deaths or life-threatening injuries were reported. On May 4, 2018 there was a 6.9 earthquake in the zone of volcanic activity from Kīlauea. Earthquakes are monitored by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory run by the USGS; the Hawaiian Islands are subjec
Water purification is the process of removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids, gases from water. The goal is to produce water fit for specific purposes. Most water is purified and disinfected for human consumption, but water purification may be carried out for a variety of other purposes, including medical, pharmacological and industrial applications; the methods used include physical processes such as filtration and distillation. Water purification may reduce the concentration of particulate matter including suspended particles, bacteria, algae and fungi as well as reduce the concentration of a range of dissolved and particulate matter; the standards for drinking water quality are set by governments or by international standards. These standards include minimum and maximum concentrations of contaminants, depending on the intended use of the water. Visual inspection can not determine. Simple procedures such as boiling or the use of a household activated carbon filter are not sufficient for treating all possible contaminants that may be present in water from an unknown source.
Natural spring water – considered safe for all practical purposes in the 19th century – must now be tested before determining what kind of treatment, if any, is needed. Chemical and microbiological analysis, while expensive, are the only way to obtain the information necessary for deciding on the appropriate method of purification. According to a 2007 World Health Organization report, 1.1 billion people lack access to an improved drinking water supply. The WHO estimates that 94% of these diarrheal disease cases are preventable through modifications to the environment, including access to safe water. Simple techniques for treating water at home, such as chlorination and solar disinfection, for storing it in safe containers could save a huge number of lives each year. Reducing deaths from waterborne diseases is a major public health goal in developing countries. Groundwater: The water emerging from some deep ground water may have fallen as rain many tens, hundreds, or thousands of years ago. Soil and rock layers filter the ground water to a high degree of clarity and it does not require additional treatment besides adding chlorine or chloramines as secondary disinfectants.
Such water may be extracted from boreholes or wells. Deep ground water is of high bacteriological quality, but the water may be rich in dissolved solids carbonates and sulfates of calcium and magnesium. Depending on the strata through which the water has flowed, other ions may be present including chloride, bicarbonate. There may be a requirement to reduce the iron or manganese content of this water to make it acceptable for drinking and laundry use. Primary disinfection may be required. Where groundwater recharge is practiced, the groundwater may require additional treatment depending on applicable state and federal regulations. Upland lakes and reservoirs: Typically located in the headwaters of river systems, upland reservoirs are sited above any human habitation and may be surrounded by a protective zone to restrict the opportunities for contamination. Bacteria and pathogen levels are low, but some bacteria, protozoa or algae will be present. Where uplands are forested or peaty, humic acids can colour the water.
Many upland sources have low pH. Rivers and low land reservoirs: Low land surface waters will have a significant bacterial load and may contain algae, suspended solids and a variety of dissolved constituents. Atmospheric water generation is a new technology that can provide high quality drinking water by extracting water from the air by cooling the air and thus condensing water vapor. Rainwater harvesting or fog collection which collect water from the atmosphere can be used in areas with significant dry seasons and in areas which experience fog when there is little rain. Desalination of seawater by distillation or reverse osmosis. Surface Water: Freshwater bodies that are open to the atmosphere and are not designated as groundwater are termed surface waters; the goals of the treatment are to remove unwanted constituents in the water and to make it safe to drink or fit for a specific purpose in industry or medical applications. Varied techniques are available to remove contaminants like fine solids, micro-organisms and some dissolved inorganic and organic materials, or environmental persistent pharmaceutical pollutants.
The choice of method will depend on the quality of the water being treated, the cost of the treatment process and the quality standards expected of the processed water. The processes below are the ones used in water purification plants; some or most may not be used depending on the scale of the quality of the raw water. Pumping and containment – The majority of water must be pumped from its source or directed into pipes or holding tanks. To avoid adding contaminants to the water, this physical infrastructure must be made from appr
Passiflora edulis is a vine species of passion flower, native to southern Brazil through Paraguay and northern Argentina. It is cultivated commercially in tropical and subtropical areas for its sweet, seedy fruit called passion fruit; the fruit is a pepo, a type of berry, round to oval, either yellow or dark purple at maturity, with a soft to firm, juicy interior filled with numerous seeds. The fruit is both eaten or juiced, the juice added to other fruit juices to enhance aroma; the passion fruit is so called because it is one of the many species of passion flower, the English translation of the Latin genus name, Passiflora. Around 1700, the name was given by missionaries in Brazil as an educational aid while trying to convert the indigenous inhabitants to Christianity. P. edulis is a perennial vine. There are two main varieties: a purple-fruited type, P. edulis f. edulis, the yellow-fruited P. edulis f. flavicarpa. The vine produces a single flower 5–7.5 cm wide at each node. The flower has green sepals and 5 white petals.
The sepals and petals form a fringe. The base of the flower is a rich purple with 5 stamens, an ovary, a branched style; the styles bend backward and the anthers, which are located on top of the styles, have a distinct head. The fruit produced is fleshy, is spherical to ovoid; the outside color of the berry ranges from dark-purple with fine white specks to light yellow. The fruit is 4—7.5 cm in diameter. The smooth, leathery rind is 9–13 mm thick, including a thick layer of pith. Within the berry, there are 250 black seeds, each 2.4 mm in length. Each seed is surrounded by a membranous sac filled with pulpy juice; the flavor of the juice is acidic and musky. The passion fruit's flavor can be compared to that of the guava fruit. Several distinct varieties of passion fruit with differing exterior appearances exist; the bright yellow flavicarpa variety known as yellow or golden passionfruit, can grow up to the size of a grapefruit, has a smooth, glossy and airy rind, has been used as a rootstock for purple passionfruit in Australia.
The dark purple edulis variety is smaller than a lemon, though it is less acidic than yellow passionfruit, has a richer aroma and flavour. Passion fruit has a variety of uses juice. In Australia and New Zealand, it is fresh and tinned, it is added to fruit salads, fresh fruit pulp or passion fruit sauce is used in desserts, including as a topping for pavlova and ice cream, a flavouring for cheesecake, in the icing of vanilla slices. A passionfruit-flavored soft drink called Passiona has been manufactured in Australia since the 1920s, it can be used in some alcoholic cocktails. In Brazil, the term maracujá applies to passion granadillo. Passion fruit mousse is a common dessert, passion fruit pulp is used to decorate the tops of cakes. Passion fruit juice, ice pops and more soft drinks are popular; when making caipirinha, one may use passion fruit instead of lime. In Colombia, it is one of the most important fruits for juices and desserts, it is available all over the country and three kinds of "maracuyá" fruit may be found.
In the Dominican Republic, where it is locally called chinola, it is used to make juice and Fruit preserves. Passion fruit-flavored syrup is used on shaved ice, the fruit is eaten raw, sprinkled with sugar. In East Africa, passion fruit is used to make fruit juice and is eaten as a whole fruit. In Hawaii, where it is known as liliko'i, passion fruit can be cut in half and the seeds scooped out with a spoon. Lilikoi-flavoured syrup is a popular topping for shave ice, it is used as a dessert flavouring for malasadas, cookies, ice cream and mochi. Passion fruit is favoured as a jam or jelly, as well as a butter. Lilikoi syrup can be used to glaze or to marinate meat and vegetables. In India, the government of Andhra Pradesh started growing passion fruit vines in the Chintapalli forests to make fruit available within the region; the fruit is eaten raw, sprinkled with sugar and is used to make juice. In Indonesia, there are two types of white flesh and yellow flesh; the white one is eaten straight as a fruit, while the yellow variety is strained to obtain its juice, cooked with sugar to make thick syrup.
In Mexico, passion fruit is eaten raw with chilli powder and lime. In Paraguay, passion fruit is used principally for its juice, to prepare desserts such as passion fruit mousse, ice cream, to flavour yogurts and cocktails. In Peru, passion fruit has long been a staple in homemade ice pops called "marciano" or "chupetes". Passion fruit is used in several desserts mousses and cheesecakes. Passion fruit juice is drunk on its own and is used in ceviche variations and in cocktails, including the Maracuyá sour, a variation of the Pisco sour. Can be eaten raw. In the Philippines, passion fruit is sold in public markets and in public schools; some vendors sell the fruit with a straw to enable sucking out the juices inside. In Portugal the Azores
Nā Pali Coast State Park
The Nā Pali Coast State Park is a 6,175 acres Hawaiian state park located in the center of the rugged 16 miles along the northwest side of Kauaʻi, the oldest inhabited Hawaiian island. The Nā Pali coast itself extends southwest starting at Keʻe Beach extending all the way to Polihale State Park; the na pali along the shoreline rise as much as 4,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. The state park was formed to protect the Kalalau Valley. To the east of the state park is the Hono O Nā Pali State Natural Reserve, it was established in 1983, extended to over 3,578 acres in 2009. Hiking trails and hunters roads have access to the sharp ridges from Koke'e Road in Waimea Canyon. Although inaccessible to vehicles, this coast can be enjoyed over land by hiking or in a helicopter, from the ocean by kayak and paddleboard. Charter tours are available on rigid-hulled inflatable boat or catamaran, originating from Port Allen and Hanalei Bay; the Kalalau Trail from the end of Hawaii Route 56 provides the only land access along the coast, traversing 11 miles and crossing five major valleys before reaching Kalalau Beach at the base of Kalalau Valley.
Side trails along the way lead to waterfalls in the valleys above. The first settlers on the Nā Pali Coast were Polynesian navigators around 1200 AD. Soon after, many Tahitian migrants followed, shaping the culture of Kauai and other Hawaiian islands today; the coast was a center for trade between Hanalei, Waimea and Ni`ihau, branched out to nearby island colonies. After Kauai was visited by Captain Cook in 1778, many Westerners began traveling to the island; as more foreigners arrived, the Hawaiian tribes along the Nā Pali Coast where Nā Pali Coast State Park now exists began to die off from Western diseases. The last known native Hawaiians to live along the Nā Pali Coast were sighted in the 20th century. Camping in Nā Pali Coast State Park is only allowed with a valid permit. There are three sites. During the summer season from May 15 to September 7, access from the ocean via boat or kayak is only allowed with a valid camping permit. Along the Kalalau Trail, the two authorized spots for camping are in Hanakoa.
Both can be accessed by hiking. These locations include facilities to accommodate campers. Five nights is the maximum stay on the Kalalau Trail, one night maximum for Hanakoa; the camp site at Miloli'i is only accessible by kayak. Permits allow access for maximum of three days. Composting toilets are available at all three camp sites.
