Greetings from Kauai!
This will be short and sweet as I have some Miller Lite drinking to do poolside!
Today Matt and I hiked some of the Na’Pali Coast. I say some since it’s a 11-mile hike one way along some pretty narrow cliffs with great, big drops. I’m terrified (repeat, terrified) of heights and did my research ahead of time – these cliffs were no joke. Our plan was to go out maybe 3 miles (so we wouldn’t reach the cliffs; they come in around mile 6) and turnaround and get in a decent 6-mile hike.
That’s exactly what we did and it was spectacular, gorgeous, and amazing.
Warning signs at the very beginning…
The hike was tough coming back since we had to go mostly uphill. My feet hurt from all the uneven footing, although I must brag I didn’t fall once. I’m a total klutz when running and have scars to prove it. It was so worth it. The camera can’t even begin to capture how beautiful the views were.

You made it! Itlooks like you hiked about the same portion that my dad and I did. Such a gorgeous trail.
Those are some gorgeous views, I can’t even imagine the real thing! Enjoy your Miller lite, although I think you should be having a Pina Colada or something.
Glad you’re having a great time. Those pictures look amazing!

So glad you were able to hike the coast!!! It’s so amazing. Enjoy that Miller Lite – and the rest of your vacay!
Wow what beautiful scenery!
Dan and I hiked that same trail on our honeymoon in 2005! It IS gorgeous–the drowning tallies are a little scary. Dan wants to do sea kayaking when we return someday–I have to admit that scares me a bit….which means I should probably do it!
This is absolutely gorgeous. I hope to hike somewhere like that someday!
Thank you so much for sharing!!!!
Damn girl. Your arms look nice and fit. Move over Jennifer Aniston. She used to be my “I want her arms” woman. Now it’s YOU. ;o)
So glad to hear from you — though, you’re only making the rest of us JEALOUS of your beautiful trip! I hope you’re having a fantastic time. Even though I miss your daily entries, I know this vacation was much needed. Can’t wait to hear more about it! XO
