Instead we checked out some waterfall chutes that were running. The valley has a rich history of being the valley of the rat. Some mo'olelo has instances where these rats would trick people into falling into the pools and drowning. Unfortunately we didn't see any rats so none of us drowned.
We visited at least three chutes out of over fifteen that day and they were all flowing. By the end of the day all were down to just a trickle if not dry. These chutes drain really quickly so the opportunity to see them are slim. We were lucky to see them on such a good rainy day.
