Steam plume. Check out the wind conditions: straight up, then off to the northeast
|I think this is the path I was looking for
on 12/9/07. I couldn't follow it because
there was a guard there.
Robin and I took another hike out to Kea'au Beach. The last time we went, on 7/27/07, they were filming the 4th Indiana
Jones movie in the area and we weren't allowed to bring cameras in. This time I was able to bring my camera and I also
line back. When we got there, I walked past the beach and went out to the coast, looking for the path that led to King's
Landing. Partway there, I saw an overgrown road that could have been it...
Ironwood along the coast. As you
might guess, there isn't much soil -->
|At the beach, fresh water seeping out
of the ground created this interesting
pattern in the sand.
|Just really cool vegetation

|The cove taken from the south end
|This is a weird place. As idyllic as it looks, the water's really cold because
there's a fresh water stream running into it. There was also a town cop and
"the owner" standing there, making sure - I don't know what. They wouldn't let
me take pictures of the houses that you can see in the last map image above. I
wasn't really taking pictures of the houses - I was taking pictures of them
because it was so weird having them standing there.
