|I decided to complete the re-hike of the October, 2006 hike which I started last week. The only
thing left to complete now is the Byron Ledge Trail and I'll have covered the whole hike I did
on 10/9/06 in one day! This time I didn't want to hike up out of the caldera (uphill to Volcano
House, which was brutal on me the last time!) so I had Robin leave me off at Volcano House
Crater where Robin met me with the car. Much easier that way!

|Another Hilo Bay kayak trip (green line out, magenta line back). I went out around "Coconut
Island" (where it's labeled Waihonu Pond) and then back up the river to the lagoon in Hilo. I
found this little stream and followed it up toward the center of town where I took some "Pix".
