Hawaiian National Cemetery - Punchbowl Crater

Detto and I took a tour of the Punchbowl Crater Cemetery. 

It was a very solemn place.

The guide told us about the men and women who died defending our nation that were buried here. 

War Correspondent Ernie Pyle..

The First Astronaut from Hawaii.

This is the view as you are leaving the cemetery.You can barely see the ocean in between the buildings. 

I never knew that Honolulu was such a major city! 

Can you see the mountains in the distance?

These trees with the HUGE seed pods captured my attention. After many failed attempts, I finally got a sort of clear picture of one. 

Such a pretty view. I wonder what it would look like at night with all of the lights on??
This is a very small island. I was amazed that we could see Diamond Head from so far away. 
No "Vog" today. 
We were told that Vog is what the locals call the fog/volcano smoke combo that limits visibility on the island!
