So we all read the posts on social media saying things like if something scares you it means it’s good for you or do something that scares you everyday….etc, etc, etc. I mean I’ve even posted stuff like that on my social media outlets …And it all sounds good and it makes you motivated to do things you haven’t done before. And that’s all great and dandy…till your bestie tells you you’re hiking the Pali Puka. And you think to yourself there is probably a very good reason why I’m scared to do is..I enjoy my life and don’t feel like falling to my death today. Eeekkkk!
Yup, look it up….look it up now!!! This hike is sketch, like super sketchy……and because it is so sketch I won’t tell you were it is. Yes, I know you can look it up on your own and find the location. So you go do that, but I won’t be the one to lead you on your way. I have no desire to be your Pali Puka Hike ring leader!
So this hike is DANGEROUS. I can’t even classify it in the “hike so hard” category…because it’s beyond that. This is on the side of a windy mountain ridge on Oahu. At points your small path is the only seperation between you and…well….the edge of a mountain!!!
If you don’t believe me, just check out this video from YouTube. This hike is no joke. Pali Puka.
Believe me now?!?!
Ok so we obviously lived to tell, so here’s some more pics.
After all that hard work fighting the winds and the edge of the mountain you’re rewarded with this cool puka in the mountain ridge!
Oh also super awesome I have a YouTube channel now. My first video is up. It’s some short video clips from this hike. You’re going to want to check it out, you’ll get the actual experience of what it’s like to be climbing up a mountain ridge. Go ahead and like and subscribe. I’m going to be doing more videos to help motivate us all to be adventurers baby.
Enjoy and hopefully I’ll get better and better with the videos as I have more practice!
Check out the video….
