I love to see Kalalau Photos.  Remember to #kalalau when you post on social media.  If you have some great photos of the trail, beach or valley, send them my way so I can share them with others.

I’ve hiked 2 Hanakapiai Falls b4, but never the whole Kalalau Trail, until now. My 1st experience turned out 2 be a semi-disaster. On a Friday morning, our tribe of 6 had made the arduous 11-mile trek and we arrived at a campsite already cloaked in darkness. We managed 2 find a spot just behind the vegetation line. Cold winter waves from the far north announced their arrival, thunderously pummeling the shore. spriggitysprong asked, "will the waves come all the way up the shore," I assured her it wouldn’t. A quick set up of tents, storytelling, hot meal, and a cinnamon roll that I missed out on, and we were off to our modern-day caves for some much needed rest. I was up b4 the sun, eager 2 capture some air. While in the air, 1 of the naughty waves suddenly made a dash for my tent, & entered without my permission, destroying a camera and air batteries. I had watched everything in slo-mo, although it all happened so quickly? Adjacent 2 me, 4cupssugar lost 1 of her hiking shoes, everyone else was fine. Instead of leaving on Sunday as planned, the tribe decided 2 pack up & hike 2 Hanakoa-5 miles away-2 spend the night there. It made sense to split the 11 mile trek in 2, as doing it in 1 pass, with 1 shoe... On the other hand, I needed my gear 2 dry, as the extra water weight would make my backpack 2 heavy. We said our goodbyes, and I was sad to see the tribe leave. I followed like a lost puppy a little down the path; I was all alone. Sadness turned into survival, I filtered water, hung my wet clothes, pillow, blanket, and sleeping pad. My tent was full of sand, and had 2 be cleaned and dried. When I was finally done it was already afternoon. In all the chaos, I hadn't even had a chance 2 truly see what I had woken up early 4. I stepped out on 2 the beach, turned around, and as I gazed upon the mountainous valley, I thought of the 1st Hawaiians and how they had crossed many more miles of ocean 2 make this land their home. This was the 1st time on this trek, I truly got 2 behold why I had endured 11 miles of hiking with a close to 40 lb. pack strapped 2 my back for. I was no longer alone; I was with Kalalau... ...

...Later in the afternoon, I was exhausted, so I crashed. I had been running up and down the beach with 360 in hand, trying to emulate a drone. With my point & shoot sacrificed to Poseidon, and my spare air batteries as good as bricks, alls I had left was my 360, and a little juice left in the flying camera. I wondered how far along my friends were. Did they make it to Hanakoa? Did it rain? Without them this adventure might not have happened. Thank you 4cupssugar for inviting me, and also kayla_dawn27 who as far as I know whipped up the idea. wayne_brettsky for taking care of the ladies, and thegreatbeerbrit and spriggitysprong for being receptive to the complicated history of Hawaii. I am truly grateful to have been on this journey with the “clam jam” tribe. Anyway, I woke up from my slumber and with just enough juice, I took to flight. It would be my last night in Kalalau. At the time, I was thinking it would have been great to share the experience with the tribe. I thought of what we all went through to make it to this magical place. And as the sun said goodnight, I said my 2nd goodbye of the day and captured this moment just for you... “O Kalalau pali 'a'ala ho'i e
Ke ake 'ia a'e lae ka wahine”

“The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present, and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future” -Audrey Hepburn

If this isn’t the perfect Covid-19 quote I’m not sure what is. The future is so unclear right now but I’m refusing to let fear dictate my life. Instead Im packing my days with adventures such as hiking or camping, surfing (or at least attempting to 😅), reading good books, exploring new beaches, doing paint by numbers, playing with clay, working out, cooking new dishes, reaching out to friends and family I haven’t always had enough time to talk with and spending as much time as I can making wonderful Kauai memories ❤️ #luckywelivekauai #hawaiilife #sunsets #kalepa #kalalau #kauai #believeinmiracles #happinessoverfear #findthepositive

Wealth. I find this very interesting to contemplate:
Wealthy people often seem to consider themselves very smart, having outsmarted the average-income population. The truth is that, if someone is smart, in the real sense, they find their way to live their life feeling at peace with themselves, happy and content. That is wealth. What is the use of amassing riches if one sacrifices their peace of mind and/or health to attain it? Please share •

My favorite memory from 2019 would definitely be this one. Overlooking the kalalau valley on the Na Pali coast in Kauai.
This was the first time in 4 years that I felt an honest joy for life and a real stoke that I hadn’t felt in a very long time. 2015-2019 was spent pulling myself out of physical, mental, and emotional hell. And this was the first glimpse that I was finding my flow again. That I was healing. My physical health was getting better, and my joy for life and existence were returning.
I came to Kauai by myself to reset. To chill the fuck out and center and ground again. And in this moment I did.
& I won’t ever forget that.
2020 I’m ready for ya.
