"Pillbox" Hike

From WWII, there are many little bunkers on various mountains around the island. They're called "pillboxes". They're everywhere. The Japanese flew over Kolekole pass, on the leeward side on their way to Pearl Harbor. During the war, roads and defenses were built all over the island. There are railroad lines up some of the mountains that used to haul amunition up to the gun turrets.

Liz and I were hanging out with Rahul over the weekend and did the lanikai pillbox trail. It's very short but has awesome views. It's got to be one of my favorites on that side now......
