Crouching Tiger Hike, Kaʻaʻawa, Oahu

I had a day off to prep for my workweek, my pal Shannon had it off too.  She was stuck home, I finally sucked it up and enjoyed an unbelievable windward drive on my motorcycle to Ka’a’awa to follow up on a plan that has been in the works for quite a while.  We were going to trek up Crouching Tiger, a short hike up the steep hills that started a half mile from where she lives.  We were dumbfounded by the views which seemed too good to be real.

We made sure to pay attention to the markers of the trailhead.

Oh man, the view of Kahana bay is amazing just a few minutes up the trail.

We honestly just had to sit and stare for a while.  This was our view…
