Kalae Fencepost

The aged fence posts of Kalae have watched over the changing fortunes of Molokai. This stalwart stands watchfully, only a mile from the Kalaupapa peninsula that brought both protection and loneliness to those suffering from leprosy in the times of Father Damien. It saw to the west as well, watching as the fortunes of the Cooke family rose and fell with the same fortunes of pineapple and ranching. Rainy, lush, and fresh, this pasture rests the eye, and, in the rare fog, nurtures the soul.
