My first hike in a while....

I got my removable cast Wed. morning and decided to celebrate. I skipped work with Jeff (Rich) and went to hike Koko Crater and Mariners Ridge. It was a somewhat rude reminder of how far I've "fallen".... I used to be able to pound up those stairs, but I was really hurting by the top. 1200ft of stairs should only take 30 minutes. Damn. The view was just great though. After a pizza break, we then hiked Mariners Ridge. Again, awesome views. I thought the day was going to to be cloudy and rainy, but there was nothing but little cotton-balls on top of the Ko'olau range. Good stuff.

Dude, Nice pics!

How do you get the green color to come out so much? What sort of color balance/filters are you using?
