One of the many outdoor activities that the island of Kauai is famous for is hiking and one of the best trails is the historic Kalalau trail. This trail takes you up a mountain, down a mountain, across a river, to a beach, up a mountain, through a waterfall and to a beautiful beach that is only accessible by the trail. It was quit an adventure and as an experienced hiker, it was challenging to say the least. There were so many people on the trail we ran into and my favorite person was Beverly, this 68 year old hiker totally whooped my ass on this hike, not only did she pass us at the start of the hike but she had already reached the beach and back and passed us again! She was amazing. After the long day of hiking we stopped by one of the local restaurants Kalypso where I was reacquainted with a classic happy hour drink, the pina colada. I swear I have not had one of these since I was 22 years old but I think it may become my drink of the summer!
