Short Hike on Na Pali Coast

This is a steep, rugged section of land at the end of the road on the north shore of Kauai. I hiked in 2 miles to Hanakapiai Beach and it was tough! This is a mother of a trail, steep and slippery in parts. When I got to the beach, the surf was (sorry to use the word) awesome. 15’+ shore break. Anyone in the water would be more or less instantly killed, if not by the bonecruncher waves, by the rocky (no sand this time of year) shore.

A few observations:

1. There were just too many people on the trail.

2. I couldn’t believe how many overweight people were making this trek.

3. There were also runners — running no less.

This day’s adventure to be continued…

    not to be snarky, (as I myself am not so slim…)

    but how the heck were the overweight folks making out on such an arduous hike? kinda surprised.
