Hiking Oahu--Pu'u Papa'a

September 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Prepared for hot one today, our Oahu Hikers group split.  One group went a more difficult route, while the other took an easier route.  Yes, I was on the easy route.  

Short hike.  Me and one other had time constraints and came back pretty quickly.  Hike started at 8am and I was back at the car by 10am.

Pu'u Papa'a has more to it than what's in the video as the remainder of the crew, I assume (haven't talked to them yet), completed the hike.

I saw enough to call it beautiful!  :-).

See for yourself!

The video....

A few steps up and there's all kinds of excuses for me to stop and breathe.

More amazing views with a  great group of people.  Love my church!

 

FMF (Fat-Man-Factor)(FMF is a difficulty scale from 1-10, from an out of shape, fat, white guy's point of view:  2 and that's only cuz fat boy doesn't like any dang thing uphill :D.  Other than that, relatively safe and easy hike, and as always, with great views.
