This is one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. My sister and I hiked out from this beach the day before we took this helicopter tour of Kauai. It was crazy to get a birds eye view of the Nā Pali Coast where we had just hiked 23 grueling miles the two days prior. I am still astounded by the ruggedness and mystique of the Kalalau Trail, and I feel like the crashing waves and moody vibes in this photo best portray what I felt while on the ground. I continue to feel drawn back to this place as if it has an agency of its own, and am already scheming travel plans to get back here. With my other travel plans I most likely won’t make it back here until 2019 or 2020. So for now I’ll have to be content with the photos I took, and the wonderful memories I made. What’s the most magical place you’ve ever experienced, and what made it so magical?
