Travel Bug Goes to Hawaii

Wayfarer's Haunted America Travel Bug is at the largest sacrificial temple on Oahu. In 1794, three of Captain George Vancouver's men of the Daedalus were sacrificed here. In 1819, the year before New England missionaries landed in Hawaii, King Kamehameha II ordered all idols here to be destroyed.

A national historic landmark, this 18th-century temple, known as the "Hill of Escape," sits on a 5-acre, 300-foot bluff overlooking Waimea Bay - all the way to Kaena Point, where the Waianae Range ends in a spirit leap to the other world. The temple appears as a huge rectangle of rocks twice as big as a football field with an altar often covered by the flower and fruit offerings left by native Hawaiians.

The photo above shows wayfarer dropping the TB into it's first cache. I inserted this picture because it's also the last known photo of our Raceway Woods Christmas Golfer TB that went missing just days later. You can see it in the plastic bag in her left hand.
