Hiking Into Waipio Valley

After 4 years, we finally hiked down into Waipio Valley!  It was spectacular and scary (25% grade) and awe inspiring in the end.  As you can see from the picture of the mangled car, it's 4-wheel drive ONLY!  No cheating on this one.  We ate a picnic lunch, the boys frolicked on the black sand beach, and we even managed to get a ride up in the back of an acquaintance's truck.  Lucky thing...the people coming up looked super miserable!  
Activities like these might just persuade me to consider a second (more rugged) vehicle.
