Bruised, blistered, and sore all over today, as Howard and I took a tough hike along the Napali coastline on the Kalalau trail. While most folks stop at Hanakapai’ai Beach and return from there (4 miles round-trip), we ventured on to the Hanakapai’ai Falls (8 miles round-trip). It took 8 hours, and was brutal at parts. While Howard made it to the falls, I ultimately stopped about 1/4 mile short, as I just wasn’t willing to ford one more river with slippery rocks with my legs as tight and stiff as they were at that point.
Here are some shots from the trail:
Today we go on a helicopter ride over the island, much of it unreachable by road. Hoping to get a good view of Waimea Canyon from above.
Sounds like an amazing trip. Thanks for sharing the adventure.
WOW!! How spectacular!
Shabbat Shalom -big hug.
Yes, that’s an infamous hike…you’re quite courageous to have taken it. Hope you’ve healed and got home safely.
