Blown Away ♥

Pali Lookout. Where my hair got violated like there's no tomorrow. Well, this turned out to be one of my favorite scenic points. (Then again, it's a tough draw between all scenic areas in Hawaii!) It's about a 5 mile drive north east from downtown Honolulu, and offers some of the best panoramic views of the island I've seen. Beautiful mountain peaks, lush greenery, and stunning ocean blues. 
Pali Lookout is the site of the Battle of Nuuanu, which occured in 1795. King Kamehameha I won the battle that finally united Oahu under his rule. A battle that had claimed hundreds of soldiers’ lives, many of which were forced off the cliffs.

Both times we were there, we had such different experiences. Both windy, but weather conditions definitely do vary, so be prepared! From strong howling winds with sunny breaks, to torrential downpours.. this place never fails to surprise you. But when the skies clear, this breathtaking site with rich Hawaiian history manages to leave you in awe of it's beauty.

Usually, a photo doesn't really capture the beauty of nature. As in it's better to see it in person, but I'm just really awe strucked with these photos that you took. It's absolutely breathtaking.
