April 1
Today we drove to Waimea Canyon, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.

More wild chickens with lots of baby chicks in one of the parking lots. Check out the beautiful feathers on this rooster.
You'll note that it was a little breezy. April 3 - Now on Oahu, a view of Diamond Head from the west end of Waikiki Walking through a line of surf boards to the beach. The famous 'Pink Palace', the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, as seen from Kuhio Beach Park Waterfall at Kuhio Beach Park
April 4 - We start our trip around Oahu with a hike at Diamond Head. - The map shows the trail up the crater wall. - To climb the crater you drive through a tunnel to a parking lot inside of it. - The trail then ascends to the rim inside of the crater. We certainly weren't alone on the trail. We started to see nice views at we climbed higher. - It was surprisingly hot inside of the crater, because there were none - of the usual Hawaiian ocean breezes inside of it. Being encircled - 360 degrees by hills cut off all winds, and heat just - built up in there under a hot tropical sun. Some of the trail consisted of lots of steps. Here are the views from the top of the Diamond Head crater.  Here's the coastal lighthouse.
