The Tip of Leeward

No, this is not the Chinaman's Hat on the Windward side of Oahu. This is the town of Makaha in West Oahu (Leeward side). I looked through Flickr and the Net and I haven't found any sunset shot of this location so I gave it a shot and luckily there were some colors in the sky and a nice sunset. The mini mount in the distance is called Papale O' Kane. Back in early days, the thugs would have watches posted on the top of the hill and spot out approaching victims to rob.
