Not a lot of text tonight – pretty tired and I need to get all of my gear together for the assault on Haleakala tomorrow (I have decided to do all 10,000+ feet, details tomorrow). Today, we went on a cool hike through a bamboo forest along some streams, with lots of waterfalls.
This is a small stream that we crossed right after starting the trail.
Looking up into the bamboo.
I said lots of waterfalls, right?
This one was cool – you had to swim about 50 yds and scale a small waterfall, then you came to a much larger waterfall basin. Several people went cliff diving here.
The reef that protected the beach set up a natural swimming flume, allowing the coaches to watch your swim stroke and give you some good feedback. The current flowed parallel to shore away from this picture. It was very strong – I don’t think I could have made any progress against it without training fins on.
