Diamond Head Crater

The trail begins with a nicely paved, gently sloping path.

Pavement disappears, but the path is still very smooth and easy to walk.

Hmm...a series of switchbacks makes things a little more interesting. We're pulling up this incline pretty well.

A series of 74 steps, a little challenging but no big deal.

Cool, a tunnel.

More steps? Are you kidding me? There are 99 in this set. A little bit of jumpy legs going on here.

Okay, this is a little bit ridiculous. Fifty-two more steps in the spiral staircase.

Climb up the ladder out of the garrison. No, I'm really serious.

Now, wasn't that worth all of the effort?

Oh, yeah. Here's where we've been, the inside of the crater.

Here's the reward. Wow.
