`Ihi`ihilauakea Crater (Koko Head) - November 11, 2011
Only had time for a quick solo hike. Had planned on doing another sunrise hike up Koko Crater with Sommer, but it rained all night and all morning. That was cancelled.
Decided to head up Koko Head and check out `Ihi`ihilauakea Crater at the far end of Hanauma Bay. I quickly made my way up Koko Head to the turn off to `Ihi`ihilauakea Crater.
Koko Head offers some great views of Hanauma bay.
There are at least two craters on Koko Head. This is the first one.
Past the first crater is another lower crater with this sign.
Made my way out to the western point of Hanauma bay.
Got a nice view of the "toilet bowl" and down the ka`iwi coast.
Stopped by the Koko Head arch/hole.
Continued along the western ridge of the crater to the trail back up to the top of Koko Head.
The ridge to the top was not too steep.
Looking back towards Koko Crater you realize you've gone a long way.
Checked out the stuff at the top of Koko Head.
Headed back down Koko Head to the car at the Koko Crater parking lot.
