As I arrived at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay, my attention turned to a painting behind the front desk. I asked the receptionist about it and she handed me a pamphlet of what appears to be a hiking trail map. After checking into my room, I immediately changed into my hiking clothes and rushed towards the trail. I had to be somewhere in an hour, so I had to pick up the pace. It didn't take me long to arrive at the island's impressive landmark, a rock they call Pu'upehe Rock or 'the Sweetheart Rock'. The lighting couldn't have been any better for it was late in the afternoon, and the rock face prominently took presence in the landscape with its golden rich color.
