Hiking down Pali Lookout

Saturday, September 25, 2010
Pali Lookout

CQ and the gang gathered together to hike down the Pali Lookout and then down into Maunawili yesterday. Jalna and I had other obligations so we weren't able to go on the Maunawili portion of the hike...maybe we gotta go back someday. Make sure you check out Jalna's pics, she has a beautiful picture of me next to some kind of speed bump thingy. I don't want to brag, but I think this one's a keeper. Here she is looking for the perfect place for our group shot (oh yah the group shot is on her blog too...):

The two criminals caught in the act
Jalna. Head degenerate. Don't mess with her.
Bye bye everybodeee! See you on Monday! Geez, they just left us in the dust! hahaha!
A perfect day to go on a hike...
Shouldn't someone come and take care of this trail that nobody's supposed to go on? It made my legs all itchy!
Where the heck is she going?
She's trying to find ways to hide out at weddings that she's not invited to so she can slyly snap some pictures of the bride
Jalna in action...what she's taking a picture of, who the heck knows!
Note to self: Don't try and take a picture of the sun shining through the branches. You'll be seeing black spots for 10 minutes after that!
Can anybody tell me where this road goes? It looks kinda spooky!
There were these little drainage holes on the bridge and when I happened to look down one I saw all the cars driving up the Pali. Neat yah!
Where did everybody go???
Where is she going now??
Hidden Honolulu?
This is the beginning of the Maunawili trail. We decided to stop here and head back up to the car
Another beautiful day in Paradise!

Really, really nice your pictures came out! Perfect exposures! Neat my leg and shoes shot . . . in splotchy lighting too! I love the cars in the puka and the sun through the leaves and the low-angle shot of me walking up the hill. Your close up of the flower came out good too. Good job with the 20D!

Les said...

Betty -- haha! thanks! I have no idea what kind of flowers those were, but strangely enough, they were growing out of the ginger plants!

Jalna -- perfect exposures?? no,no,no,no...I sucked. Thank god for PS! Stooopid 20D! I guess I'm gonna wait till March to get my $20 cleaning deal! thanks though! haha!

Hoa! Thoes were NEAT! 'That road': if we hiked all the way down going underneath the freeway(which we opted NOT to take this time),we would have eventually ended on that road. Comes out by Morgans Corner. Thats the one i said if we went that route, we should park 1 car there to make it a 1 way trip downhill..but OH WELL! Was fun wasnt it? AND we went to get Lemonade at HOTDOG-on-a-stick after! WhooHoo!!

Les said...

CQ - nooooo, too spooky! Aww man! We missed out on hot dog on a stick!?!?
