Aloha AHA Members,

Save the dates July 15-16, 2011 for a visit to Kalaupapa National Historical Park!

Some specifics:

2. We’ll hike down Fri morning 7/15 and hike back up Sat afternoon 7/16.
The 3 mile trail scales 1,600 feet of vertical Molokai north shore sea cliffs. Hiking time on the trail for a physically fit individual is estimated at 1-1 1/2 hours down and 1 1/2-2 hours back up.

3. We’ll overnite on Friday in Kalaupapa in Park housing.
There will be kitchen facilities & linen but we will need to bring our food.

4. Estimated Cost:
Registration fee: $45
Housing:  There is no set fee but a voluntary donation will be appreciated.
Transportation estimate: Honolulu/Hoolehua roundtrip airfare via Island Air, $145.
Ground transportation from Hoolehua airport to trailhead & return: to be determined.

For those who want to skip the hike:
Honolulu/Kalaupapa roundtrip airfare via Pacific Wings, $501 (this is not a typo).

If you are interested in joining us, please email me by April 30: carolhas@hawaii.edu
This is not a commitment; a head count will help us with planning & logistics.
We can accommodate a very limited number of members.
More information & a registration form will be available in May.

Looking forward to a great summer!
AHA President-elect
