Quick hike and back to the falls. Loving Hawaii 1 more day left.
"I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts."
went to hawaii with my folks. they let me have a couple of days to myself so i could get out and be more active. i went with a high school friend on a couple of short hikes. this was a popular spot, but we were there early enough to beat most of the crowds. lots of japanese tourists trying to hike in the mud with slippers.
Saw this hike in a book I'd bought at an ABC store, it was close by and looked like fun. We journeyed through a muddy rainforest paradise to Manoa Falls, enjoying an environment so completely different than our southern Arizona home. There were plenty of hikers out, but it certainly wasn't what I would call crowded. I enjoy people-watching in tourist areas, and this adventure paid off with a guy hiking in a very nice suit, unaware of the mud.
