Hiking creates a huge sense of elation in my life. It’s not always the same exact feeling every time. It can happen when I finally reach that certain summit, surrounded by beautiful views from a secluded peak, that some will never see in person. Sometimes, it’s just putting one foot in front of the other, and listening to the sounds of nature, while I traverse a challenging part of the trail. And sometimes it’s days or weeks after I have finished a hike, when I look back at what I accomplished. Hiking really does create an emotional high and there is no better place to hike than the Hawaiian Islands. From it's gorgeous waterfalls, to it's historic volcanic craters.
