Abstract

Aerial view of Diamond Head, located at the eastern end of Waikiki, Honolulu, in the southeastern corner of the island of Oahu. Diamond Head, Hawaii's most recongnised landmark, is a volcanic tuff cone, part of a series of the Honolulu volcanic eruptions which took place approx. 100,000 years ago. A 1km, very steep walking trail to the summit of the crater rim, offers spectacular views of Honolulu and the island of Oahu. Built in 1908, the trail was part of Oahu's coastal defense, as well as Fort Kruger, a military reservation, established inside the crater in 1909, and which is still used for training by the National Guard. This view from the south ocean side, shows the subdivisions (from east to west) of Wilhemina Rise, Maunalani Heights, Palolo and St. Louis Heights, extending up the ridges of the Koolau volcano which rises to 2000 ft and forms the eastern side of the island of Oahu.
