Na Pali coast vía Awa’awapuhi trail
Picking up hitchhiker (not really a hitchhiker) @heahs2nature turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. If it weren’t for his trail recommendation I would’ve never made it to the Na Pali coast. I picked him up off the side of the road and on the about mile drive back to his car he was able to recommend some sick spots to me. He also told me “Make sure you bring a lot of water”, something in hindsight I should’ve taken his advice on, especially since I’m notoriously fantastic at regularly not doing that. I started the trail at about 8am, and ran DOWNHILL the entire three miles to the lookout. Once there, I was completely awestruck, in every sense of the word. It was the the first time in my life where I was genuinely speechless, my brain literally could not conjure up any thoughts grand enough to process what was in front of me. It was without a doubt the most epic place I’ve ever been to in my life. After sitting at the lookouts for about two hours, I decided I should probably head back. The trip there was all downhill, which meant the trip back was uhhh... yep, you guessed it, 3.2 miles of uphill with my signature move - “only two sips of water left”. Luckily though it felt quick, and by quick I mean nothing of the sort. Sure I made it down in about 30 minutes, but the way back up was about 30 minutes for every mile. In all seriousness though, my photos, or honestly anyone’s photos of this place will never give you the feeling of seeing it in person. You (and I can’t stress this enough) HAVE to go see this place for yourself.
