Fall colors abound even in the tropics

Some folks living in Hawaii miss the four seasons of more temperate regions, especially if they grew up in a region that has summer, fall, winter and spring. Here we have rainy and dry seasons. This is somewhat confusing since West Hawaii is beginning its dry season as the east side of the island is beginning its rainy season! Whether rainy or dry, fall is now and we do have fall colors if we look for them.
