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.
Hiking has really helped me climb out of a dark chapter in my life, and as I have continued to hike more and more, I decided to create this blog to share my adventures and maybe motivate others to get out on the trail.
