Road to Hana // Part I• 10 comments •
Each twist and turn along the Road to Hana offers the potential of adventure and awe. Some stops are obvious, and have a constant stream of tourists, others can be treacherous and frequented mostly by locals. We were excited to try a (allegedly well marked) hike off the beaten path that promised amazing views of a normally overlooked waterfall.
We drove back and forth a few times until we eventually parked at what we believed to be the trailhead. Upon entering the path, we quickly realized that our definition of “well marked” did not match the jungle that surrounded us.
After climbing over and under logs, sliding on wet rocks, and stumbling upon a swimming hole, we came to the conclusion that we were not on the hike we expected... even if we did come across a waterfall. We ran back to our car with a ridiculous amount of mosquitos in pursuit. - Alex
