Mariner's Ridge Hike..

Mariner's Ridge hike. Here we go.
So on Thanksgiving it was just the four of us as we had opted out of the North Shore camping. I found myself cooking a turkey dinner. The boy was on the North Shore surfing, the hubs was watching football, and Daughter was cruising in the house. Probably college stuff.

After the food was all in the oven, BC and I went for a little hike.
On the south shore of Oahu, in a suburb called Hawaii Kai, there is a ridge with fancy houses called Mariner's Ridge. If you drive to the top and park, a trail spins off and you can hike up to a gorgeous view of the south and east shores.

Click on any photo if you would like a bigger, closer look.

The beginning of the hike, just above Mariner's Ridge. In the background is Koko Crater.


View of Koko Head and Moanalua Bay.



BC posing on the trail for you all.



The terrain change several times as you ascend.


At the top of the ridge you can see Kailua and the Mokuluas (The Mokes).




This view looks up the east side of the island. You are looking towards Kaneohe.
That peak is Olomana.



Thanks for coming along!

I'm so glad you have these lovely pictures I can come look at when I'm sick to death of the cold, snowy, icy, raining yuk outside my window.
