Hilina Pali Again Again!
March 27, 2012
CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE
The real reason I keep trying this hike is because it's not raining.  On the windward side, where
we live, we've had a long run of rainy weather and sometimes I just have to get out and walk
I'm going is all brown!  No rain.  This reprises previous attempts on
7/23/12 and 3/8/12.
Hilina Pali Road is, as you can see, a very twisty affair.  20 mph in most places.  It's almost as
entertaining as the hike itself.  I managed to take some pictures...
In this view, I'm showing the marked trails in red with the distances in miles.  If you look close,
you can also see that I'm basically walking along the top of a cliff that's roughly 1500 feet high...

At first, the road is fairly civilized...

And then the terrain changes a little bit...

This is sort of a panorama from the parking area.  I will be heading down the coast to the right, following the path just to the
right of that information sign on the right...

Watch your step!  It's hard to see the
very uneven ground through the
grass...

A look back...

Once again, I kept thinking about the (uphill) hike back.  The trail continued downhill and the further I went, the more I had
to hike back up the hill again.  Finally, I decided to turn back.  I just didn't feel like beating myself up.  Besides, the terrain
wasn't all that interesting...
