Where I’ll be tomorrow

Tomorrow morning I’m starting the Kalalau trail along the Na Pali coast.  A couple days ago we did a plane trip around the island and I took this shot.  At the time I thought it was as close to the Kalalau trail as I was going to get.  The trail has been closed because rain in the mountains had made the rivers too high to cross.  A couple days ago it reopened, and barring no major weather events I should be starting off bright and early tomorrow. I’m not sure how far I’ll make it. Miles 6.5 through 8 are right along the cliffs and hopefully those aren’t too washed away to pass.  I know mom and dad are worried about me doing this, but I just keep reminding them that I’m neither stupid nor reckless.  If I think it’s not going to be safe I’ll just turn around and head back.  But if I do make it the whole 11 miles in I’ll have three nights of camping on the beach at the end of this valley:

I’ve had a chance to go through almost all of the photos I’ve taken on the trip so far.  I’m going to attempt to set up some posts for the next couple days so there’ll be more photos appearing here even while I’m on the trail.
