Bamboo Forest

Another adventure we had on Maui was walking through a bamboo forest.
The towering stalks had the effect of making me feel the size of an ant. It was dark and damp. The leaves rustled and the stalks clacked when the wind blew overhead but no breeze reached ground level to disturb the still humid air.

The stalks were so close together I was sure there would be no ninjas fighting amongst them.

I had wanted to walk in a bamboo forest after seeing the 'Flying Daggers' movie.
On the rainy north side of Maui (wettest place in the world getting 400 inches of rain a year) the bamboo forests are vast.
