Pu'u Pihea There  Sucess!

A fun and very scenic hike, worth the long drive up Waimea Canyon Drive. I also enjoyed some post hike beer at Koke'e Lodge.

Muddy fun!  Sucess!

Stopped by the Kauai Humane Society to pick up a field trip dog and then continued through the canyon to the end of the road/trailhead. Although the trail in some parts was very muddy, the day was actually quite nice and we had a great time. However, we were both filthy muddy when we finished and I was a bit embarrassed returning Archie to the KHS in such a state. They were understanding though and glad he had a great hike!

Cracking  Sucess!

Had great weather so trail dry as. Views were excellent throughout. Continued onwards through the swamp.

Pihea  Sucess!

It was extremely muddy when I did this hike. I had to use both hands to pull myself up the last 1/10 of a mile to keep from slipping. The viewpoints along the trail are actually better than the summit itself. It is a great hike.

Up and down before dark

We started way late in the day but what can i say ...on vacation. Made it to the slick rock outcropping at top of the initial ridge @2000'. Lots of soft front pointing and paradise views made this ridge climb ideal.

class three mud bath  Sucess!

I'm laughing as I write this because as silly as it sounds, I could not have made it to the summit without the use of my hands; my wife an I were up to our ankles in muck and had to scale at least two active streams to get to the top; there are lots of tree roots you can grab on. If you like wet mud and outstanding views, this hike is for you; don't bring boots, bring Teva's. Watch out for the overhanging soggy precipice beneath the summit; it looks like it could go any day now and it's probably a 500ft vertical drop, bounce, bounce, etc.

Does this count?  Sucess!

Ok, so does an in utero climb count here on SP? I'm still learning how things work...

Mommy did a great job of taking me up to the summit of Pihea, but I still made her kind of tired. I wonder when they're going to take me back there to climb it on my own?

Well, I guess I should worry about the whole walking & talking things first...

An afternoon stroll...  Sucess!

My wife, Carol, and I hiked out to the summit of Pihea to enjoy the beauty of this high area on Kauai. The baby kept getting tired, though...
