Time to give Trav the spotlight! While he was on leave he had one big thing he wanted to do that wasn't family friendly... You may have heard of this little hike called Stairway to Heaven or Haiku Steps. This hike has almost 4,000 steps from start to finish (one way.) You gain almost 3,000 feet in elevation. When you are driving on one of the main highways here you can see the steps from your car and we get excited every time we see them! Travis invited Nate for this hike (I really do want to do it at some point but they scouted it out first! :) ) Technically, this hike is illegal (as are many of the hikes here in Hawaii usually just because they are a liability issue...) but this one has a guard that comes on really early in the morning so you have to start BEFORE he gets there. So add to the danger that you are starting the hike in pitch black (they got there around 3 or 4 in the morning!) When you come back down the guard just waves bye to you so as long as you start before he gets there it's not a big deal. I'm not going to caption the pictures since I wasn't there but seriously? How awesome does this look??!!!
