Crepes, Lulumahu Falls - Hiking

Image
Lulumahu Falls
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate
Danger: Low to High (slippery, muddy spots along trail, several water crossings, potential loose rocks/debris at top of waterfall)

My last day of hiking on O’ahu was spent with Neil and my cousin Darrell. Delicious crepes, hiking a beautiful lush valley and great hiking companionship....what more could a girl ask for!

The morning started off with Neil treating us to a pre-hike breakfast at Crepes No Ka Oi in Kailua. I have to admit, I’ve never been to a Creperie and I didn’t know what to expect. But Neil highly recommended this eatery, and I’m sure glad we ate there. We got there 5 minutes before they opened and Neil pointed out the menu that was posted in the window. I was surprised to find out that they also made meat crepes.

Doane's Falls Reservation - Winter Hiking

Image
Royalston, Doane's Falls Reservation, Worcester County, MA.  Trail to falls - 0.3 mile, Elevation Loss - 175 feet.

Donned my MicroSpikes this morning for a 2 hour hike along the Doane's Falls in Royalston, MA. I was hoping to see some frozen ice flows but with the recent warm temps, that wasn't gonna happen! But I was happy with the beautiful water falls and got to take photos and a short vid of the falls. The parking lot is uber small and can only fit about 3 cars. From the parking lot the falls can be heard and seen immediately. I spent 2 hours hiking up and down half a mile along the falls edge taking photos of the falls and the surrounding area. Okay, I didn't stay on the trail like the signs state but, I was very careful around the water's edges. And lo and behold! There were ice flows on the eastbound side of Route 2 between exits 21 and 22! WOOT!
