Day 10 - Hiking Diamond Head and Home

On our last day in Hawaii we got up early to hike Diamond Head.  We have hiked it once before and it is a good workout with an amazing view at the top.  Here is a view of the mountain from our sailing trip the day before...........
This is the zig zagging trail that leads to the dark tunnels and steep staircases to the top.
 Coming up the stairs.  I was glad Mike was carrying the baby.  Next time he is walking!!
 We stopped for a second on the way up to snap some pictures.
 Finally at the top :)
 Enjoying the view.
 Waikiki in the background.
 Little dude at the top.




 The way back down.
 Those stairs are wicked steep!!!
 My way of cooling down afterward.  Grabbing a lemon lime shave ice in the parking lot!  Yum!
 And then it was time to go home.  Jeremiah loved looking out the airplane window!  We had a wonderful and amazing trip.  Oh how I love Hawaii!!  Can't wait to visit again!

It is quite a workout, but after all of the splurging on vacation it was good for me! Plus it was fun and the view was awesome!
