We went to Hawaii on our honeymoon in 1989 and in 2014, for our 25th Anniversary, we went to the same hotel and repeated our walk from Waikiki to Diamond Head. It was actually an easier walk to the top this time because we're used to walking our hills now whereas when we went to Hawaii the first time, we ran 5 miles a day, but it was flat land. Walking the Sierra Nevada Mountain foothills that we live in at home really helps keep us ready for the vacation hikes!

Here are some links to flash slide shows that can be viewed on a PC but are no longer supported on iPhone or Android devices. Back when these slide shows were made, there was no way to add music...
