Does Koko Head Crater count as a mountain?
Well after climbing 1000 + steps a.k.a really old railroad ties I’d have to say that yes, yes it does count as hiking a mountain.
It started off as a moderately difficult. But that was just the beginning my friends. We frequently stopped along the way to
catch our breath take photos.
And I was doing ok until I saw this…
Notice anything different about these railroad ties? Oh yeah – there’s nothing underneath them [insert panic attack].
I managed to disguise my fear quite nicely, and get the heck past this part of the trail as fast as I possibly could. It was getting pretty steep – but we were almost there!
And then you realize it was totally worth it when you get a load of this view!

And then there’s more of the breathtaking beauty that is Hawaii.
And then there was the trip back down – which of course meant the scary bridge.
We made it back in one piece but my legs were shaking like crazy. I’m certainly going to feel it tomorrow!
