We trekked to the end of the road, stopped at all of the Waimea Canyon lookouts, and hiked the thorny bush trail (we renamed it). Capped day 6 off with a nighttime soak in the hot tub, attempting to loosen our stiff muscles. There is sure to be more adventure tomorrow!

Kauai day 5 was a rest day, but we still managed to find a damn good salad, our first rainbow, Queens Bath, and a wee bit of adventure! (We may have such through a stranger's yard while attempting to catch the sunset! Lol....)
The hike along the 11 miles of Na Pali coastline to Kalalau was amazing, challenging, exhausting, and breathtaking. We hiked along cliff sides, drank from mountain streams, swam in a cave and showered in a waterfall. We watched sunset, stars, and sunrise on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Met a pirate, Hawaiian chief, and some naked hippies. Tried noni (tastes like blue cheese!) and passion fruit right from the tree. Capped it off with a boat ride that made me glad to be alive - Na Pali is truly an amazing place.
