Steve takes a hike towards Ilio Point

While Renee was in town at a book group meeting,
I set out to find the abandoned Coast Guard Loran Station at Ilio Point, which is at the extreme NW corner of Molokai.  Why hike to some tumbledown buildings in the middle of nowhere?  I don't know either - it looked like an intriguing spot on google earth - see the picture to the right.  Anyway, I didn't make it all the way there (ran out of time) but saw some great stuff along the way...



The "trail" was right along the cliff-edge...




The sign (arrow) is as close as I got.












A high point of the walk was crossing Kawakiu beach.  I believe I was the only person to be there that day.  Here is a panoramic shot of the beach, looking from the north...
