|Colors of the Crater|
TOTAL TIME: 2.5 hrs
PARTICIPANTS: "Hangover" Lynnale, Me
REHIKE VALUE: 8
It was time to revisit what I affectionately call ‘my training ground’ in preparation of Pu’u Kalena later this week. The last time I did this, I just hiked up the south rim from the botanical garden in the crater and went down the stairs on the other side.
