On the 8th I met up with Alessandro (an Italian I met at the hostel a few days prior) to hike the infamous Haiku Stairs, also called the Stairway to Heaven. While everyday in Hawaii was a top notch adventure, hiking the stairs were by far my favorite part of the trip.
The first photo is the start of the 3,922 steps that gain about 2,280 over approximately 2.2 miles. To get there Alessandro and I had to hike through a bamboo forest.
Photo creds for these three go to Alessandro
