Waikik'i

This is my second time visiting O'ahu Island.  I was here in December 2012.  It is much much prettier in summer.  Breathtaking!  Who doesn't love Hawai'i?

Stow Lake

Some climbing and hiking trails


I came here to hike the Presidio of the San Francisco, but I ran into something more interesting.  Bay to Breakers and the Golden Gate Band Music Festival!

El Corte de Madera

4 hr, 10.65 mile hike at El Corte de Madera Open Space Preserve.  



This is my first hike since January.    Not so good for not hiking for a long time (since I started my weekend job).  




I'm trying to get back to routine.  Trying!  Will hike at least once a month.  The weather is getting nicer and nicer.  It's perfect time for outdoor activities!  I love living in the Bay Area.  I love my country!
