Mahalo to Laura and Marco, who are wonderful, longtime subscribers and Aloha Friday Photo contributors from Italy, for sending these excellent Kauai photos and story.
Here’s the story they shared of seeing King Kong’s profile at Kalalea Mountain in Kauai.
The first photo was taken during a tour around Kauai on August 2014.
Driving north from Kapa’a on Highway 56, after passing mile marker 14, our guide pointed out the mountain to our left: Kalalea Mountain. Our cheerful guide told us that the second peak from the left was referred to as King Kong’s profile, since it resembles the head of the big ape featured in the 1976 remake of King Kong (which was partially filmed on Kauai).
To be honest I didn’t recognize the profile at all … until the moment when, at home, my husband made a little editing (See the second picture !) NOW I can see where the King Kong’s profile is!! 🙂
Mahalo to Marco for the excellent photo editing skills that have helped us all to see King Kong’s profile.
Happy Aloha Friday!
