A short hike and a potluck today with some Oahu Hikers. Sometimes it's nice to NOT sweat profusely :-).
Only fitting since we had a few new faces with us today, I would get pics of them.
Palin here has an owner. Not sure how I avoided pre-hike pics of her. I love German Shepherds. That might have thrown off my concentration :D.
Annnnd we're off...
Khym, bringing his mind together with the hike.
Today was not different than most. I hung toward the back, which means shots of butts. What can I say...I like. Big. Butts....you know the rest :-).
A banyon jungle back in there. I think they're the most amazing of trees.
Somehow skipped to the front to get some faces.
Again with the banyons. Love the arches created. Looks similar to Manoa, Kuliouou, etc. Love it!
Time to take a break aka figure out which of the 4 trails we're taking aka time for me to take some pics.
This boy tried to avoid my wrath. I tried to tell him I would win :D.
Not my moped. Although not a bad idea!
More doggie posing.
The lookout right before we ended this short hike.
Carolyn freeing the space of drama, below. Maggie and Jonathan making the beauty more beautiful, above.
Time to climb some trees...
Maybe my favorite shot of the day. 3 or 4 out on that tree at this time.
Chris showing off his best side.
Offering a helping hand. He, of course, refused.
Due to the drama created by putting too many people in a tree, more drama clearing was in order.
Time to eat!
One would think we plan it this way and don't invite everyone to the potluck so we have more food, but we're just the only ones who stuck around. Hey, I didn't complain :D.
And out to the lookout for one last shot before we leave. Now that's beautiful!
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 Not sure why this isn't a 1. Possible for the breif moment I was out of breath walking back up the road to the parking lot. I generally sweat sitting still and the mild hike, along with the cool breeze, had me dry, for the most part, at the end of this one.
