Jackass Ginger Pool and Ruins

PA210050  We're at the Judd Trail this time...a 1-mile loop that took us through a beautiful pine forest and by a pool we couldn't resist slipping and sliding down into :) TrailBlazer1sm  Liisa - love this photo of the wee babe in the woods! TrailBlazer2sm  Trailblazers indeed! TheKrugssm  Me, Sam and Ben :)
HonuForestsm RentABabyWakessm  Love this shot of Ben just waking up from a hiking nap :) PA210063  Kathy and girls with another great bamboo hiking pole! Kathy has an eye for them! PA210064  Ben and me :) Thanks for the great new pack, Dave!
PA210065  These pines were amazing - very very tall. Still am not sure if Cook or Norfolk. I think Norfolk pines, brought here to make masts. PA210066  Or swords! PA210068 PA210069
PA210070  Back in my favorite hiking shorts - cargo pants from the Old Navy boys' junior section :) PA210073  Sword fight! PA210074  The children were a little weary - no problem, Kathy is strong! PA210079  Snacks revived them :)
PA210081  The jackass ginger pool - apparently a donkey was roped near this pool long ago. And there is ginger growing nearby. PA210082 PA210089  A little precarious getting down there, but worth it. PA210090
PA210093  Ruins of Kaniakapupu...King Kamehameha III's summer palace. Very interesting place to visit. Apparently a luau for 10,000 people was held here. This was where he entertained foreign celebrities and dignitaries in the mid 1800s. PA230040 PA230030 PA230042

PA210096 PA210098  Almost looks like Scottish ruins from 1200! PA210100 PA210102
PA230005 PA230009  Dave came back with us a few days later when the sun was out... PA230012 PA230021
