  Craig & Elizabeth set out on the trail . . . don't fall off the cliff, and watch out for that red mud!

  We took a breather after a 2 mile hike to a rocky beach, and once back on the trail, found evidence of our 2001 hike in the bamboo groves.

  After another 2.5 miles, the Hanakapi'ai falls speak for themselves.

  Craig sits on the rocks by the falls and contemplates a swim to the falls. Afterwards Craig sat Elizabeth on the rocks and asked her to contemplate another adventure . . . and we got engaged!

The hike ends at Ke'e beach, where you can leave your hiking stick for the next traveler, and wash off all that red mud.
