I had a whole day to spend in Oahu and figured this would be a great place to catch a sunrise. The park opened about 20 minutes before sunrise, so it would be a quick hike to the top. I thought Id be one of the only ones up there but it seemed everyone else had the same idea!
The hike in isn’t too bad but trying to make the sunrise meant near jogging the whole time. I definitely got the heart rate up!
Feeling the irony, almost nobody was looking at the sunrise through their own eyes. I actually put my camera down and tried something I don’t do very often. Just looking at it.
As soon as the sun came up, 80% of the people just vanished! I stuck around and ended up having a nice conversation with a German couple on their vacation.
The way out was pretty easy, fair warning all the hand rails will leave your hands stained red however so best to not use them unless you have to.crowds, diamondhead, hawaii, island, layover, sunrise, travel
