Explore Hawaii: Hiking – Waianae Valley, Oahu

January 31, 2016 |

My 3rd hike with the Hawaiian Trail & Mountain Club. We met at 8:30am and ended around 1:00pm (4.5 hrs). Today’s hike we crossed several flowing streams – Kalalulu, Kukaki to the Kanewai Streams. Most of the hike was canopied by the shade of the valley’s Ironwood and Lemon Eucalyptus trees and trekking through coffee plants, ferns… mostly non native species of plant life… probably a botanist’s dream hike. The location has several shared trails from other known hikes: Wai’anae Waterworks, Wai’anae Rumble, and Wai’anae Kai to name a few. Read More

If you’re a Macbook owner, you know how disappointing the speakers are. There just isn’t that oomph to enjoy iTunes and movies on the Mac. No longer! Boom 2 was well worth – $14.99. Read More
