So this winter I went on a walk around the temple/WWII pillboxes and I took some photos of my town while the sun went down! I wanted to get them all in one place and show people. I'm not a photographer and my camera sucks so this ain't some pretentious photography slideshow >: ( (Also none of the photos are edited or anything, sometimes my phone ups the green hues a lot which is weird but other than that they were left alone)
First Image! This is a canal from the local lake, eventually this thing leads to the ocean where people swim in it.
trust me when I say you don't wanna swim in there. Why people swim in a brown river right next to a pristine blue ocean is beyond me.
Fruits I found! The first is a noni, which you DO NOT EAT EVER SERIOUSLY DON'T DO IT
then ya got breadfruit, lilikoi, and starfruits! I later turned the Breadfruit into a cake because it got too soft and sweet. I found a purple lilikoi too, fell on the road so it's fair game.
These are the old island ruins behind the YMCA. Apparently it's called the Ulupō Heiau
(Heiau being the word for those old Island temple things)
Most of em are broken because of how history went down, still nice though!
Also no one seems to go there? Like if you ever visit it's super cool and there aren't gonna be any other tourists.
Ok so I went back into town and found the entrance to the hill, this thing was pretty hard to find cuz its tucked in on some random residential road.
Don't let the stairs fool ya tho, most of the path is made of dirt and rocks. It used to freak me out when I was younger cuz there are a lot of exposed cliff areas with cacti below. Most of em are just full of hats, no bodies.
Ok so I'm not a big fan of this part of the trail, it's super overgrown and a bit cramped
This is ant territory so don't sit anywhere for too long, I dunno if they'll hurt ya but I'm definitely not taking that risk. They're warriors and I am no match for their power.
Ok then I got to the top and saw this:
It looks like someone blew up pearl harbor but with an H-Bomb this time
Every day the sun sets behind Olomana, and its just fenwenviwENGAviwanfe
I have a view of Olomana from my room and sometimes ya get this but purple
. In my top ten fav mountains for sure. Also my town is weirdly symmetrical? I never noticed that when inside of it. To the left you're heading towards Waimanalo, to the right is Kane'ohe. Also past the mountains is the road to Honolulu and stuff.
Also the WWII pillboxes are a bit farther up the trail but I forgot to bring water so I was basically DYING on the way home.
OK so that was my town you should totally visit if you inexplicably find yourself in the middle of the pacific. I know where all the free cookies and fruit trees are so let me know and I'll fill ya in. Ok I do
have an exam tomorrow so I think I'll sleep. See ya.
