Hawaiian Fever, Part Six.

7.23.2009

Me and the husband at Pihea Vista We spent much of the following day in the Waimea Canyon area of Koke'e State Park. We saw some astonishing views, and bought some fresh mango and coconut from a parking lot vendor. We hiked the the Pihea trail from Pu'u o Kila lookout to Pihea vista. The view was worth it - we could see the ocean straight down Napali, clouds surrounding the base of Wai'ale'ale, and the highest swamp in the world. The trail was a deceptively tough 1.8 miles out and back. If you're ever considering a hike in Hawaii, your "difficult" is Hawaii's "moderate". There was a lot of climbing; I used tree roots and branches as rungs on a ladder in some places.
