I’m happy to say that Exploration: Hawaii just turned one! Actually, this happened on the 12th, but who’s keeping track? A lot has happened in the last year. I remember starting this blog after my infamous experience on the Bowman trail en route to Haiku Stairs. I was so excited to share my experience that I had the site up and running in about a day. Since then, the Exploration: Hawaii crew has documented 91 different hikes, all of which you can find on our hikes page. That’s a lot of hiking. That’s also a lot of sweat, mud, laughs, bumps, and bruises.
Last month I stopped by Hanauma Bay for a quick afternoon snorkel and was shocked to find that the shore was littered with thousands (probably millions state-wide) of tiny (and mostly dead) spotted reef crabs. According to this article from Hawaii News Now, top Hawaii marine biologists are unsure of why they washed up in the surf.
Hi guys. I’m Mike and this is my first post on Exploration: Hawaii. To be perfectly honest, I prefer to do crazy, fun, and adventurous stuff instead of sit in front of a computer and type stuff up. So I’ll keep my posts short. Sound good?
Wow, Japan. There’s a pretty long list of things I like about Japan, but if I had to sum it up, I’d say the combination of detail-oriented structuredness and creative outlandishness makes it one of the most unique and fascinating places in the world.
Lanipo has been a long time coming. This particular hike, also known as Mauumae Ridge, has been on my hiking radar for a few months now. It has a reputation for being one of the more difficult (state maintained) east-side trails.
Ziplining is something that I’ve always wanted to do. The thought of ziplining always seemed safer than skydiving, yet more adventurous than a controlled roller coaster ride. I recently had the chance to zipline for the very first time with my wife of just one week. It was actually Michelle’s idea to go ziplining and so if anything were to go horribly wrong, say an unforgettable wedgie at 600 feet, then I would place all blame on her.
