"Grand Canyon" of the Pacific
This is a hiking island! Everywhere you go there are fantastic hiking trails! We REALLY needed to rent a 4 x 4 instead of a convertible!! We have been officially off-roading and didn't get stuck!! We are kicking ourselves that we didn't get at least a jeep so we could get further into some areas. (NO joke--DIRT roads are a mainstay to get into the inner sanctum of the canyon.) One lady I talked to said her son went out on a really long hike down toward the beach from the top of the Na Pali 'cliffs' and his quote was "I have never been more scared in my life"---the trail followed the super narrow tops of the mountains! Of course we haven't gotten THAT brave but the opportunity to kill yourself abounds for anyone willing to risk it! (Ask us about the condition of our "red" shoes when we get home) We spent the day exploring Wiamea Canyon and all of its splendor!! Guess what???? Matt only had to stop TWICE so I didn't hurl!! (anyone want to change their bet on the fishing trip?? HEEHEE) HUGS to all!!
