Guam, Talofofo Falls and Yokoi's Cave

Talofofo Park contains the falls of the same name and Yokoi's cave. Yokoi was the gentleman who remained in the dark about the end of WWII and lived in this cave for an additional 28 years after the war was over. The falls located next to the cave are pretty scenic, but it is hard to imagine he lived in this cave for 28 days let alone 28 years. It is in a really remote area even today, with plenty of nasty spiders and snakes. Looking at the mouth (as you cant enter it) of the cave, I'm not sure if I would even fit into it. Really amazing. The falls were nice and the short cable car ride down the cliff, and a couple of Carney level museums made for an interesting stop.
