an 8 mile round trip hike on a rocky, rooty, muddy, slippery hike to Hanakap'ia Beach and Falls . . . we definitely ran out of steam on the last mile back down!
we probably crossed 6 or more different spots in streams
42 visitors who were killed swimming at this beach:

there was another guy who was surfing - still crazy if you ask me ;)
rock towers at the beach
one of many beautiful stream paths we had to cross to follow the trail to the falls:
