On the first day of 2011 we hiked to Pele's Chair, on the easternmost point of the island. We thought it would be fun and fitting to spend the last day of 2011 hiking to Ka'ena Point, on the westernmost point of the island. I read a description that included the phrase "scenic, remote, with stunning views of the impossibly blue Pacific" to describe the trail. I agree - the water was a brilliant blue hue on this hot, sunny day! Much of the coastline we passed looked like the photo here. I am looking forward to sharing more photos and information about Ka'ena Point throughout the week - it is such a great place to experience natural Hawaii.
