We thought we'd share some of the pictures of our travels. So, here they are! We're pleased to have had the chance to be in a position to see these things in person.
We spent some nights in a cabin in the Koke'e State Park. As a result, it was easy for us to revisit various sites depending on the time of day, amount of sunshine, etc. The Kalalau Lookout and Pu'u o kila Lookout both overlook the Kalalau Valley. We found that there were very few people there at both ends of the day, which we found attractive.

We were treated to a fantastic sunset from the same lookout. But, you have to face West (yes, yes, that IS where the sun goes down at night). The 'normal' overlook faces North. But, we did get to see the sun sink into the sea. Now we know where it goes at the end of the day. Something has to keep the waters warm you know.

As we mentioned, it wasn't always sunny up at Koke'e State Park. One of our morning treks featured fog/clouds. But, it also provided some interesting chances a pictures. That, and we enjoyed watching things clear as the sun came up in the morning.
