Daily Dose: Photo 27

This photo is from another extraordinary day on Kaua'i. Every single day was filled with adventure and completely awe inspiring, but there were certain experiences that were even more special than others. A lot of that had to do with the work we put into getting to those places. Spending more than a handful of hours treking through wet, knee-deep mud, crossing into a large stream several times, slipping off of wet rocks, weaving in and out of the trail... we made it pretty dang close to the wall of Wai'ale'ale Crater, where these gorgeous and pristine waterfalls cascade and meet into a large pool which then flows into the stream. This is called the Blue Hole hike and should be on your 'to-do list' if you are ready to brave some interesting terrain (keeping in mind, we only saw 2 other people on the way there the whole time we were there). To see this wall of water coming from the wettest spot on Earth is as glorious as you could imagine, but was made even better by the fact that we hiked (almost all of) the way up to it. Definitely one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
