    Just visited Ulupo this morning for the 1st time, even though I’ve been a Kailua resident for over 20 years. What a beautiful sight!! One can really see the enormous amount of energy and aloha that has been given to this sight. Malama ka aina indeed. Mahalo nui loa for all your hard work. Ulupo heiau will definitely receive more visits from me and I’ll spread the word to others as well.
    Aloha no,
