Smoky Valley, is located on the west side of Kauai, in the Waimea Valley. It is named for the gun smoke that filled the air from the rifles of the local Pani.olos (cowboys) who would shoot off their guns pau hana (finished work).

Makaweli Valley is secluded within the Waimea Valley. These heirloom taro or "kalo" patches are private and not accessible to the public. Generations of Makaweli taro continues to be farmed by the same families. 

This is my dog Dave, with Hula, his horse friend that he loves to be with.
