    Talking Makapuu Lighthouse Sunrise New Years Day '13

    http://hawaii.gov/dlnr/chair/pio/nr/2012/NR12-176.pdf
    The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) invites the public to the second annual New Year’s Day hike on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, along the scenic Makapuu lighthouse trail at the Ka Iwi State Scenic Shoreline, located in East Oahu. The Makapuu trail is an old paved lighthouse management road that leads to the summit of Makapuu ridge. On this day only, Division of State Parks staff will open the gate along Kalanianaole highway for vehicle parking in the trail parking lot at 5:30 a.m. (parking is first-come, first-served).
    Last year the parking lot was full by 5:45 a.m. The public is not advised to park along Kalanianaole Highway.
    Approximately 500 people attended last year’s event and enjoyed a spectacular sunrise.

    Mrs. Menehune and I plan on going! We'll see how we feel at 5am though.

    Thumbs up Re: Makapuu Lighthouse Sunrise New Years Day '13

    A lot of folks enjoyed a wonderful morning together!
    We got to the parking at 5am finding it already open and a space for us! 1st good sign. Talked along the trail up to the lighthouse (viewing spot). Nice Oli at sunrise 7:09 then Taiko drums too. But best of all were the whales offshore. Didn't get any good shots though, of much really, but here are a few...http://www.flickr.com/photos/6989123...7632411003234/
