Big Dude GoPro-filmed all our island adventures, so if you’re feeling a hankering to explore Hawaii and see the sights – including the Hanakapi’ai Falls, feel free to live vicariously through our trip (it’s how I enjoyed the Kalalau Trail and Falls this time – without fearing death).
And here are my explorations while the dudes were sweatin’ the hills…
The wet cave.
The dry cave.
I was supposed to meet back up with the dudes at the trailhead around sunset. I went a little early and settled down at Ke’e beach to enjoy the waves and the setting sun (and to be able to get a parking space before all the other sunset gazers arrived, so the dudes wouldn’t have to additionally hike forever back to the jeep…)
I loved watching the color hues of the lighting change so dramatically…
My favorite hikers made it back just before it started getting dark. Tired, sweaty, dirty, hungry, still smiling (Big Dude), and kinda grumpy (Little Dude).
And heading back to the airport to go home.
