#3 Layout for The 2011 Book

So this is my third layout for the 2011 Year Book. For some reason I'm going for simple this year. Maybe 'cause I'd rather be drawing :O

These are some photos from the Keaiwa Loop Trail which is billed as a keiki trail, i.e. it's suitable for children. The children in question better be hung onto tight or they might slide down a ravine. There was a lot of mud on parts of the trail when we went, so their was quite a bit of cleanup before getting into the car. The views from the trail are fantastic of the airport  area and the upper H-3. This particular day we were also blessed to find brightly colored fungi and mushrooms.

The Keaiwa Loop Trail is a fun trail when it's not too muddy. There is also plenty of parking (a plus on island), several bathrooms, and the trail is marked well. So even though it can be a bit heart pounding at times when with little ones, it scores pretty high.

Great photos from your day on the trail! I bet it was a bit nerve wracking when things got muddy and slippery! Love the photos of the mushrooms... great textures! :)

Thanks, Deb!

We saw some beautiful fungi on the trail, probably because of all the rain :) I really enjoy taking photos of mushrooms, they have the best shapes, colors, and textures.

Some of the trails here are nerve-wracking, especially when people are slipping and sliding near The Edge. But it is fun too when everyone makes it back to the car tired and dirty after a beautiful hike.

This looks so wonderful. The scenic in the circle has so much depth and everything else seems to space against that. Must have been fun at least by the time you all finished.

Thanks, Jean!

It was fun and the views are fantastic, plus hiking around in the jungle getting dirty and scaring the parents are what the boys are all about!
