The story goes that this pillbox was anonymously painted pink in support of a cancer awareness hike. Not everyone loves the paint job, according to this report by Hawaii News Now, but the organizer of the 2015 hike hopes the pink bunker will be a reminder of the fight against cancer. Located in Mā‘ili in Waiʻanae, the hike to this bunker takes a quick 20 minutes. From the pill box, you can see the entire west coast of Oahu. When I took this picture I met Max Holloway, the Waiʻanae-born professional mixed martial arts fighter. Photograph by Nui Sabas.
The Upper Makua Cave overlooks the end of Farrington Highway, the furthest you can go by car on the west side of Oahu. The hike to the cave, while short, is steep and the rocky path is dry and crumbly. However, the view is well worth the climb. Photograph by Nui Sabas.
In search of even more spectacular views, intrepid hikers go beyond the popular Crouching Lion trail. But those who stick to just the easier part of the trail will still be rewarded with a stunning 360 degree view atop the Crouching Lion himself. Photograph by Nui Sabas.
