Stairway to Heaven....... or Hell ?!?!???!?!?!

KOKO CRATER, Oahu Hawaii

This is one of my original palette knife oil paintings featuring Koko Crater, on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii. It is the tallest extinct volcano on the island, and is known for it's famous
"Railway Hike".
A very steep one mile, 1200 ft. elevation gain "steps" track, remnants of an old WWII tram system, that will take you to the top of the crater for an amazing view.
(if you can survive the lung burning cardio hike up)


I painted this view of Koko Crater from a photo I took out on our kayak, looking in towards shore. The Portlock area homes can be seen in the foreground. Many people confuse Koko Crater with "Koko Head", but "Koko Head" is the smaller crater just south of Koko Crater, skirting Hanauma Bay.

Mahalo for taking the time to view my artwork!
