Another Kenji hike, this time to the Moanalua ridge, up to the top of the Stairway to Heaven, and down the Moanalua middle ridge. Great climbing with a group of old and new friends. Clear day made the views better than I’ve ever seen up here.
Purple nails to match the shoes. Hiking in style.
Up to the ridge, beautiful sights awaited.
A sobering moment when the hiking turned to climbing. Kenji coaching the first timers (myself included) on which route is safest.
KST veterans leading the way.
Moanalua valley from the ridge.
The radar tower is just a short bit away. So amazing to hit it on such a beautiful day.
Crosses lined the perimeter.
Kaneohe and Kailua below.
Back down the Moanalua middle ridge. One of my favorite ridge hikes so far. Open and grassy, although a bit warm.
Peculiar rock in the tree, has a face.
Some leaf origami on the way out.
