Air photo of the north coast of Moloka'i. The 600-1000 m high cliffs are the headwalls of a giant landslide that carried away half of the E Moloka'i volcano. The dotted red line outlines the original shield surface, into which the large valleys of Wailau, Pelekunu, Waikolu, and Wai'ale'ia Valley have cut. Oloku'i is a high point between Wailau and Pelekunu; because of its isolation by steep cliffs, Oloku'i boasts a fine complement of rare native plants.
