Beach Walk 352 – Hiking the Pali

You wanted more locations! Join us as we hike the Pali and discover beautiful water.

Chris, Lana, and Brent Dog took Lexi and me on another great hike: the Judd Trail in the Nu’uanu Pali area.

There were some really steep parts to the trail, and Lexi slipped a few times. It got my #2 (see show #102 for more info) worrying that she would fall off the edge. So I outed the fear by talking to Lana, and poof, it went away. I like taking these abstracts (“face your fears”) and putting them into action. Makes it real in my life.

If you like hiking and are coming to O’ahu, here’s the book we use: The Hikers Guide to O’ahu. This was hike #11 – Nu’uanu-Judd.

Beach Walk 346 – Hiking Hidden Hawai’i

Take a walk in the woods of O’ahu today as we explore hidden trails and insights from Brent.

I usually default to the beach, all beach, nothing but the beach. But our friends Chris and Lana called and invited us on a hike up Aiea Ridge today. Curious timing, as it appears tourism travel to Hawai’i was down slightly last year, as people are wanting to see new places.

I wonder. How much have they wandered off the usual tourist trails? I am guilty of staying with the familiar myself. But today is a good opportunity to change that.

BrentDog – mahalo for the inspiration for today’s show!
