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. A little further west we see residences in the hills and the start of apartment buildings.
Looking west we see a nice view of Waikiki. Bill and Larry from atop the crater. Looking down into the Diamond Head crater. We begin our climb back down.  Watch your step, Bill.
