Gates on the Manoa Cliff Trail

IMG00118 I had heard mention of a fence and gates being added up by where the work is being done close to the Map Room on the Manoa Cliff trail. Still I was not ready to see such a shiny fence and gate. The first gate is on the Manoa Cliff trail right at the Map Room. The second gate is further along the Cliff Trail towards Manoa Valley.

I understand the why behind the gates, I just wish they were a little less shiny and somehow blended in a bit more. I guess in time, after weathering a bit, the shine and shock of seeing gates will wear off.
