When I was just 18 years of age,
a friend of mine invited me to accompany him hiking. Young
and full of vigor, I decided to join him on what I thought
would be a little walk in the woods. Little did I know at the
time that we were about to hike the highest mountain in the
Continental United States.
We climbed California’s Mt. Whitney (14,495 feet) on
a crisp cool October day in a little more than 10 hours. Ever
since that triumphant moment, I’ve been in love with
The numerous treks under my belt include hiking Grand Canyon
National Park, Joshua Tree NP, Zion NP, and Bryce Canyon NP.
This semester I, along with my colleague Joseph Bybee, have
worked with Kalamalama to bring you some of the exciting outdoor
adventures on and around O‘ahu. The new section will
inform readers about local hikes, aquatic sports such as scuba
diving, how-tos, equipment and shop reviews, and anything related
to outdoor activities. Send your suggestions, if there’s
something you like top see covered, or your articles if you’ve
done something interesting.
