Пасмурный день позволил оторваться от побережья и заглянуть в ботанический сад Коко Кратер, расположенный, в прямом соответствии со своим названием, в кратере потухшего вулкана.

Cloudy weather gave us an opportunity to leave the coast and explore this small but nice botanical garden located in a crater of the extinct volcano.

The Koko Crater Botanical Garden (60 acres) is a botanical garden located within the Koko Crater (Koko Head) on the eastern end of Oahu, Hawaii. The garden is part of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens, and first established in 1958. Its hot, dry climate is suitable for Plumeria and Bougainvillea cultivars in the outer crater, kiawe (Prosopis pallida) and koa haole (Leucaena leucocephala) trees, and four major collections organized by region (Africa, the Americas, Hawaii, Madagascar). Other collections include adeniums, alluaudias, aloes, baobabs, cacti, euphorbias, palms, and sansevierias, as well as a native grove of wiliwili trees (Erythrina sandwicensis). A loop trail (2 miles) runs through the collections.
