I will never forget what it felt like to reach the summit of Mt. Wiliwilinui. My husband and I decided to take on a ridge trail hike during our holidays in Oahu, Hawaii. This hike was one of the highlights from our trip, as it pushed us out of our comfort zones while climbing ropes, stairs and slopes of mud along the trail.
We hiked through the, heat, wind and a couple of rain storms. The clouds moved quickly over the mountains, exposing different peaks as we hiked. My hands and knees were covered in mud by the end of the trail! As for my running shoes… those hit the sink to be rinsed off as soon as we got home.
The temperature at the top of the mountain was quite chilly as we were 2,480 ft above sea level. The view from the top of this 4 hour, 14km hike was wildly rewarding. I never thought I’d experience a hike as rewarding as this one!
An experience I will never forget.
