Ka'ena Point

A hike to the Westernmost tip of Oahu...

In Hawaiian legend it is believed that Ka'ena Point is where souls depart from the earth into the afterlife. The exact point was called “ka leina a ka uhane,” meaning “the leap of the soul.”

Ka'ena means 'the heat' so of course we hiked to the hottest part of the island, at the hottest time of day.
