Although I lived a stone’s throw from the trail entrance for years (9, to be exact), it wasn’t until this past weekend that I made the hike up to the top of Diamond Head. I’m really not sure why it took me so long. Just one of those things that got pushed back for “one day” when life wasn’t feeling so busy.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about those things and making an effort to actually do them. So even though we had had a late night the night before and would have preferred to laze about the house, and even though the sky was threatening to unleash a downpour (we did, in fact get rained on a tiny bit) we set out for the hike right before lunch. It took us a little over an hour to get to the summit and back. Totally worth it.
