Diamond Head

Earlier in the week I ran in the rain…today I hiked in the rain, strong wind and with a bunch of tourists. I hiked Diamond Head (Leahi..which means brow of the tuna in Hawaiian), which is a very popular tourist hike on the southeast side of the island (I strategically chose to hike this during the week so there would be less tourists). It was very different from a normal hike since it used to be a strategic military lookout in the early 1900s (no artillery was ever fired during a war). There are still tunnels, metal stairs and mounts for observation equipment in some of the places. I enjoyed this hike and the tunnels were pretty cool, but I can cross this off my list. There are a million other places to go hiking on the island with better views and less people!
