The Nature Conservancy preserve at Mo`omomi offers a place to get away from it all. Notice no hotels, no shops, no restaurants, no facilities of any kind. Just getting here is a real challenge because it is only accessible on foot or via a 4WD vehicle. The Nature Conservancy offers monthly hikes — to sign up call 1-808-553-5236 or send email to hike_molokai@tnc.org.

The Nature Conservancy website states, "Mo`omomi Preserve is a last stronghold of a major Hawaiian coastal ecosystem, a holdover from an ancient era. Strong and steady northeast trade winds shape the dunes of Mo`omomi, creating linear dunes a mile long and hundreds of feet wide. At first glance, these dunes appear nearly barren. Yet within these vast communities of native grasses and shrubs grow more rare coastal species than in any other single place in the main Hawaiian Islands."

As a photographer, all I can saw is "Wow!"
