April 28 Photo of the Day: Easter Island

November 3, 2008 – The moai of Easter Island are the main attraction. With 15, including the tallest on the island, Ahu Tongariki has the most moai of any ahu.

Before and after visiting Rano Raraku we spent a couple of hours happily wandering the site.

Here, for some unknown reason, Lesa felt compelled to provide a sense of scale, in this case, using one of the fallen moai.

For some additional information about ahus and moai, see this PBS page.
