Dragon's Nostrils

Joel and I were able to check something off our "List of things to do in Hawaii" this week as we finally got a babysitter and did a hike we have been eying for 2 years called "Dragon's Nostrils". It is not a kid friendly hike, and was quite an adventure. We had an AMAZING time.

You start by going up a paved path and eventually turn of the paved path to hike down volcanic rock. We were heading to the tide pools you see at the bottom is this picture.

At the bottom are 2 blow holes that look like a dragon blowing steam out his nostrils, hence the name of the hike. We sat at the bottom enjoying the tide pools, watching the ocean, and having uninterrupted conversations.

Well, if you know me, you know me and my lighthouse pictures.
Just had to share this amazing view.

This is the path we hiked home. Yes, what path?! There really isn't one. Instead of hiking back up, you just hike over the rocks along the bottom of the cliffs for some beautiful hidden sights.

Joel at one of those beautiful sights.

The best find of the hike was this tide pool. It was deep enough that we couldn't touch the bottom but crystal clear, hidden in the side of the cliff with an ocean view to the side.

Another great memory of Hawaii to add to our collection.


  1. Wow!! That hike looked amazing. You sure have been able to make some good memories in Hawaii.

  2. I LOVE uninterrupted conversation!!! Glad you had a good time together!

  3. Incredible. I have probably said this before, but you guys sure have taken every opportunity to enjoy Hawaii, that is so great!
