More on hiking to Ka’ena Point

It’s always best to hike out to Ka’ena Point either early or late in the day. Even when it’s a bit overcast, the sun can be brutal, and there’s nearly no shade. On this trip, we didn’t make it out there until about 10:30 am, which meant that we were really hiking at the worst time of the day. While it actually wasn’t that hot, it was pretty sunny. The prevailing winds did keep the vog away from us, though.

Yan and I lured Dad out on the hike with a promise of cool scenery to sketch and a pretty easy hike. Which it was (on both counts), but it was also pretty hot for a retired Minnesotan hauling art supplies.

I kind of like this photo of Dad & myself, with the Waianaes in the background. (Photo: Y. Fernandez)

I think some of the scenery impressed Dad more than other things. For example, the big sea arch and the blowhole seemed to hold his attention…

…While the abandoned car did not. To be fair, it looked much more like a car last year.

Will there be anything left next time we hike out there? (Photo: Y. Fernandez)
