This sign for Rano Kau was at the bottom of the hill, just as you started to climb.   This sign for CONAF was nearby. CONAF is short for Corporación Nacional Forestal, which is the Chilean national forest service; they also administer all national parks.

 
This big satellite dish was at the bottom of the hill. I have no idea what it was used for. Entel (the phone company) has their own big satellite dish in Hanga Roa next to their office.   This beautiful scene was along the road to Hanga Roa near the CONAF sign. The grounds were obviously tended with care.

 
A variety of thistle, Cirsium sp.
