We started off today at Diamond Head. You park and then hike up a trail and stairs to the top so that you can see into the crater that was left behind by a volcano. Also, at the top there are beautiful views of the ocean and Oahu.

It was a strenuous hike, for me anyway. But we made it to the top and every time I felt like stopping on the way up I would see someone coming down the trail that was wearing heels, flip flops, a dress, or a pantsuit, and thought if they can do this than so can I.
The views from the top were amazing and totally worth the hike. And actually the hike itself was fun for the most part, except the part where there were spiral stairs inside the mountain that were small and steep, that was just scary.
The below pictures are views from the top of the mountain looking down. Worth it right?
This is the staircase looking downwards. Some little girl about 20 or 30 steps ahead of us fell down the stairs. We didn't see it but heard the commotions. Poor little thing. I don't know that I would take kids up there but people were doing it, even carrying little babies. Guess they are a lot braver than I am.
Goodnight from Oahu!
