Ashley makes her way upwards on the long climb.
Dec 31, 2019 near Wailua, HI
A little trail-side vegetation starts popping out of the rocks and sand.
Dec 31, 2019 near Kēōkea, HI
The grasslands at this end of the hike are almost polar opposite to the barren landscape at the start.
Dec 31, 2019 near Wailua, HI
At this point it's hard to say if catching a view is more important than catching you breath.
Dec 31, 2019 near Wailua, HI
Once you start it can seem as there is no end to the rock switchbacks that dominate this trail.
Dec 31, 2019 near Wailua, HI
Where some see a hitching post others will find a good spot to stretch before tackling the switchbacks ahead.

If you're visiting in the winter hopefully you brought a jacket with you for a possible shower.

Up close the Silversword plant seems almost metallic.
