When he thought of Hawaii the first images that came to mind were beaches and women in bathing suits. But, when he had a chance to go there his urge for hiking and experiencing nature brought him to features of the landscape he had no idea existed. The pinnacle of his trip was when he hiked to the top of a small mountain that ended in a cliff surrounded by enormous wall of a majestic volcanic creation. This was nothing like the Hawaii he imagined. Too close to the edge he looked down and realized a deep reverence for the awe inspiring landscape as well as the fall to the water below.
