Kaena Point

look at those tan legs!!

Back in November while Jason Derck was visiting, we decided to do a sunset hike out on the west side. I have to say when we started planning this hike we were misinformed. First of all Oahu revealed said if you come from the North side and there hasn't been rain, the road is two wheel drive and you can drive all the way to within 1/2 a mile of Kaena Point.  Lies, nothing but lies! This road is 4 wheel drive all the time.  And if you really think you can do it in two wheel drive I hope your car is lifted like two feet.  
Anyways once we got there we realized we couldn't drive so we walked.  The walk isn't that terrible but I would recommend wearing shoes.  It took us around an hour to get to the point and then we waited 45 minutes for sunset.  The sunset was beautiful, of course. As soon as the sun dipped below the horizon we started back trying to make it as far as possible before it was dark.  We didn't make it very far.  I think we walked 45 minutes in the dark back to our car, and had someone not been pulling out at the moment we made it to the parking lot, we would of walked past it.
