Worked 3 hours on the 1910 Olympus-Castle trail that roughly goes from Mt. Olympus to Konahuanui on a contour on the leeward side. Made good progress. On the topo map, near Olympus, find "HONOLULU". I was at "H", almost half-way to the True Horror sedan rock already.

I could see _that_ very clearly from the trail.

Wonderful weather for trail-clearing, cool with drizzle. Never sweated, never even drank water except for lunch.

Someone watching from Waikiki with binocs would have been astonished to see a huge brown caterpillar moving on the mountain, with a tiny blue head. That's the trail being extended by me, who wore a blue raincoat!!
