This weekend's hike was up the Waimea River to the Waimea waterfall, on the northwestern end of the island of Oahu. It is a great trek. Part of the trail goes through the Audubon National Bird Sanctuary, and the other part through the Waimea Falls State Park. Trails in the park are primitive and otherworldy, while those in the Audubon are some of the best maintained trails in Hawai'i. It works out nice, as the way up to the falls is in the bush, while the walk back down is over nice trails through the Audubon, which has its own set of trails leading to the falls. The first pic is of the staircase that is the entry point to the river trail, followed by sights along the way.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
