Today was group hike day to the Pali Puka.
At start time the puka was socked in and the conditions were not favorable for walking on the side of a cliff. So, we ventured down the Old Pali Rd in search of a few waterfalls.
After that very short hike, we made it back to where we started where a few (ok, everyone except Jason and I) went ahead and made the trip to the puka. Since I was just there this past Thursday (proof is right here) I didn't feel the need to make that trip again :-). That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Then it was off to Mokoli'i, better known as Chinaman's Hat. I can't describe the serenity in kayaking to and from Mokoli'i. Surrounded by beauty and the only noise is the paddles hitting the water. Truly blessed!
Here's the videos and images:
I split it into two videos instead of having a very long ONE :-).
The first is of the short, waterfall hike....
and next, the longer, Chinaman's Hat video.....
FMF (Fat-Man-Factor): 2 for the falls. 5-6 for the hat. The falls really isn't much of a hike. A little walk and a few rock hops and you're there. Not much danger involved. The hat has a few rock faces to climb and I didn't make it to the top because of the last one, but I was more tired than scared. As always, hike at your own risk and know your limits and you should do fine. (FMF is a difficulty scale from 1-10, from an out of shape, fat, white guy's point of view)
