Someone to Watch Over Me

Someone to Watch Over Me, originally uploaded by Maltphoto.

Kelley and I were rewarded with this spectacular view on an early morning hike of Diamond Head in Oahu. Luckily we were still on California time, so getting up at 6am was no big deal for us. The hike looked more intimidating than it really was, and we made in to the top in about 25 minutes. The hike itself was very interesting with great views of the crater, the lighthouse, and some interesting stairways and tunnels. I highly recommend going early in the morning though. By the time we got back to the car a little after 8am, it was already in the mid-80s and climbing, not to mention the tourbuses starting dumping lots of people off at the trailhead. It's also a hike I'd probably do again when we go back, though there's also the Makapuu lighthouse hike I'd like to get to, which we cancelled after a long day of driving the North Shore and snorkeling at Sharks Cove.
