What I Did On My Hawaiian Vacation, Pt. 2

On the second full day, we hiked up Diamond Head. Which is a heck of a walk, at least for someone as out of shape as I sadly have become. First, you follow an incredibly steep path until your thighs ache, then you climb an even more steep (and approximately infinite) set of stairs, then you trudge upward some more, then there are more stairs, and finally you have to crawl through a cramped old WWI bunker. But when you get to the top, you're rewarded by views spectacular enough to make every step worth it:

After that, I think we went for a swim or something. It's all kind of a blur.


  1. Wow, those views really are incredible. And it meant you had exercise, too!

  2. I did! Although with all the extra food I ate on the trip, I think the net result was a wash. :)
