Photo Of The Day: Kalalau Trail Hikers

This Photo of the Day comes from Gadling Flickr pool member Buck Forester who captured the image in Kauai, Hawaii. The image is titled “Kalalau Trail Hikers.”

The Kalalau Trail runs along the coast of Kauai approximately 11 miles (18 kilometers) on the island’s north shore from Keʻe Beach to the Kalalau Valley. Experienced, fit hikers complete the trail in a day, but most people require two days and will also camp along the trail.

Upload your best shots to the Gadling Group Pool on Flickr. Several times a week we choose our favorite images from the pool as Photos of the Day.

Tips for getting featured: in your Flickr account, check “Privacy and Permissions,” and check “yes” on “Allow others to share your stuff.” Adding information about your image does not hurt your chances either.

Photo of the Day- The Banana Coast, Honduras

Our photo of the day comes from Honduras, namely what is called the Banana Coast. This photo taken at sunset exemplifies the natural beauty that can be found in the coastal town of Trujillo that dates back to 1524 when Spanish conquistadors under Hernán Cortés. Cristóbal de Olid (1487-1524) founded the town. Olid was a Spanish adventurer, conquistador and rebel who played a part in the conquest of Mexico and Honduras. Cortés himself visited Trujillo after its founding. The location was strategic for Spanish interests in the New World

Today that strategic interest continues as Trujillo vies to be the next popular cruise port, breaking ground on a new 50,000-square-foot mainland cruise port, the first in Honduras.

The new port, set to open in 2012, is expected to create more than 3000 jobs and promote tourism to the Banana Coast as an alternative to Roatan, Honduras, Belize City, Belize, and Costa Maya and Cozumel both Mexican ports
