Makapuu Hike Pics
The following were taken during a hike from Makapu'u Lookout to Mariner's
Ridge on November 28, 1997--a breezy, almost cloud-free day after
Thanksgiving. The pics were snapped with a digital camera by Nathan Yuen.
Dayle in front of Kaulanaaka'iole ("the resting
place of the rat"). Hawaiian legend says an archer from Kauai, from a
canoe off of Mokapu peninsula, "arrowed" an 'iole at this spot.
The same hole, sans Dayle.
The offshore island Kaohikaipu is visible through the hole.
A steep dropoff in the ridge.
We had to negotiate several sections like this during the hike.

A skyview of the reef below.
Yes, the cliff drops straight down a thousand feet from here.
The saddle at the head of
Kamilonui Valley. A peak called Pu'u o Kona and a massive ridge that
drops to windward is in the background.
