Adventure is allowing the unexpected to happen to you. Exploration is experiencing what you have not before. The unpredictable weather in Hawaii has definitely made for an adventurous exploration so far.
If you had to pick, would you rather adventure in a familiar place or explore a new place?

Pali Notches Trail offers some of the best view in Honolulu. Experienced climbers can descend two man-made notches and then continue hiking along the ridge to "The Chimney", a vertical wall that leads to the highest peak in the Ko'olau Range.⠀
Link to this trail in our bio.
Madam Pele sure knows how to make some pretty mountains! 😊️
Idk why everything we tried to do was #kapu (forbidden) on this trip. I was particularly looking forward to the Nu’uanu Pali #Trail, but it was closed. 😞 (I wanted to look for #ghosts! 👻)
If I read the map correctly (which tbh is unlikely), I believe this is the Olomana peak in the Ko’olau range.
The Ko’olau Mountains might be my favorite place on Oahu (since the rest of the island is so dang crowded)! The weather is also gloriously cooler and windy with wonderful mists and fogs that pop up out of nowhere. Now *that’s* paradise. 😁
