Another Hill Hunt

West of Kahului along the coast, there is a hill that pokes up high.

I spoke with someone about it a while back, and they said there was a trail to get to the top. Yesterday, I went to see if I could climb it.

There is a trail, but it is really steep, and as I get older, my fear of heights is getting worse. It seems like age should take the edge off of irrational fears, but mine seems to be getting sharper. I couldn’t get very high up the side. I did get some nice views of the ocean though.

There were some really cool erosion patterns in the rocks. I’m not sure what specifically is going on with these, but they were all over the side of the hill…

I took a picture of another rock too. It looked like a skull! It made me think of the Goonies. Hehe…

It was also a great opportunity for a “senior picture”… I mean, like senior in high school, not senior citizen. heh.

    Your senior photo! The line of the ocean is exactly in line with your shorts/shirt border! That is fantastic! I love all the rock formations, too. What an astounding variety of surfaces in one relatively small area.

    Speaking of irrational fears (raises hand), if anyone has a way to conquer those, I’d like to get in line for the treatment. 🙂

    Beautiful! And I agree about the irrational fears. Why are they getting worse? Maybe it’s more “common sense” taking over. The part of our brain that says, “This ain’t right, ” is getting stronger.

      Amen to that – I’m not even thrilled about taking drapers down off the rod any more – not sure if that qualifies as irrational, but there is definitely a common sense element at play.

    Those were amazing photos you shared, Brad. Thank you so much! I’m off to research those rock formations now.

    …and I am glad you had the common sense to not climb higher and risk being on the evening news: “Middle school teachers throws self off hill west of Kahalui – no pictures at 11; results too upsetting”
