Kaimu Walk
June 14, 2009
I decided I needed to get some exercise but I couldn't drive very far because I didn't have enough money for gas so I
decided to just take a quick hike around the
Kaimu area near the new Black Sand Beach.  This would be a nice little
walk, not one of those killer 10+ mile jobs I've been attempting.  So I parked at the end of the road where I always take
pictures of the lava plume and just hike up the coast to see what's there (green line).  When it started to look a little too
difficult (first picture below), I turned around and headed back toward the Black Sand Beach (magenta line) and then
back to the car...

Approaching Black Sand Beach (BSB)
Notice how steep the beach is.  That means a wicked undertow.  Don't want to swim there...  
Next stop Antarctica...

Kehena Hike
June 28, 2009
Another short hike near home.  I decided to cover some of
the coast near the house that I hadn't been to yet.
The hike down.  I started out going north (green line) but
the terrain got really rough so I turned around and
headed south (cyan line)
The hike back.
4 WD on the roads I'd discovered on
the hike...
