I’m still sunburned. Not quite as bad. But still sunburned.
Today’s post is going to be a bit truncated; we hiked the Na Pali coast and since the majority of my 289 photos of the day were from that, this will just briefly cover it. Hopefully before I go to sleep or sometime in the morning I can update about the rest of the day.
Basically the Na Pali hike runs alongside a cliff that ranges from a hundred to a few hundred feet straight down to the ocean. At some points in the trail is less then two feet wide. It’s less of a hike than a climb; you’re either going uphill or downhill the entire time, over rocks, roots, and thanks to a tropical depression, mud. I’m not going to say I have a fear of heights but I have a deal with heights that I’m not going to get into. Suffice to say that heights and I have an agreement and while we held this agreement there were a couple of spots where heights poked me and said yo, I can take your punk ass out anytime.
But, in the end, it was amazing. The river that leads to the ocean at the beach was strong and the tide was coming in, so that passage was difficult and we had to call it a day early, but it was entirely worth it. In the spirit of a “photoblog”, I’m going to let the pictures tell most of the story (click on them to check out more from the day), but the end result is that I am absolutely exhausted, so exhausted that I didn’t even eat dinner. If you know me, you know that’s serious.
