Diamond Head (Death March) Day Hike

Honolulu, Hawaii, April 2008: Kathryn and I hiked to the summit of Diamond Head, the most famous volcanic crater in the world! This famous landmark is a volcanic tuff cone that overlooks the Pacific Ocean on the Southeast Coast of O'ahu. It was originally named Laeahi by the ancient Hawaiians, which translates as "brow of the tuna." Looking at the silhouette of the crater from Waikiki Beach, one begins to see the resemblance.

I made the following picture of Waikiki Beach while on top of Diamond Head.
