Aloha, friends!

So, yesterday I went on my first hike in Hawaii, and it was a challenge! The trail zig-zagged up a mountainside.

IMG_4993 It felt like walking up a very long flight of stairs. Now, I can take a movie theatre size flight of stairs like a gazelle (am I right, Grant?), but Holy Hannah, this one had my calves screaming and my lungs kicking my ribcage for air!

Note the warning signs at the beginning of the trail. DSC_1649 Nothing here warning about jelly legs.

This is a gently sloping part of the trail, designed to lull you into a false sense of security.

In all seriousness, though, the hike was a fun challenge, and the reward at the top was worth it. Check out the view! DSC_1671 DSC_1684

 

Today is another, much flatter hike. I’ll see you on the other side.

Mahalo,

Jen
