Sam's favorite hike. Here we are at our destination, 1.2 mile hike with about a 400' elevation gain. Perfect for gramma's first hike this season, because whooping cough idled me for almost 3 months! In this picture, you're looking at Honolulu/Waikiki while Sam munches on dried papaya treats.
Ben and Alli -- you can't help but think how handy it would be to wear a Ben-harness and have somebody real big hoist you up and over the ditches, big rocks and roots!
A handy rope! Sam usually swings from the aerial banyan tree roots.
Most of the trail looked like this, with some slightly steeper places. Fortunately, we've had no recent rain (until tonight), because rain + Hawaii soil = slip-n-slide-to-da-max!
Manoa Valley -- all the pictures on the blog are clickable to a larger image, by the way.
