Diamond Head Hike

Hiking up one of Hawaii's most famous volcano's was definitely a highlight of the trip! The crater, called Diamond Head, is the remainder of a volcanic explosion that took place over 500,000 years ago. Pretty amazing to hike up inside of it and get to the top to see a spectacular panoramic view of the island. The hike took about 45 minutes and wasn't too bad but we definitely got a good little workout in. The payoff was beautiful!

The hiking trail going up! We started in the middle of the crater and made our way up. 
It's about 1.5 miles up. Great way to get a workout in!
Overview of Waikiki!


Later that day, we went snorkeling here at Hanauma Bay. All those dark areas in the turquoise waters are live coral reef. It was pretty cold due to the strong winds but we still got in and saw some pretty fish. We bought an underwater camera which we've yet to develop, but will show you when I get them in! The sites were surreal.
