Backpacking from Waipio Valley to Waimanu Valley on the Big Island of Hawaii from August 19th, 2011 to August 21st, 2011. The route consisted of crossing Wailoa Stream, walking the coastline of Waipio Bay, ascending the "Z Trail" switchbacks, hiking in and out of mulitple gulches for nine miles along the Muliwai Trail, descending switchbacks into Waimanu Valley, and crossing Waimanu Stream. On our first day we set up camp, ate dinner, had a few drinks, and went to sleep to prepare for Day 2. Day 2 consisted of swimming in the bay, filling up water at Kawewai Springs, hiking into the valley to Wai'ilikahi Falls and Kaka'auki Falls, and catching prawns, opihi, and fish for dinner. On Day 3 we hiked back to Waipio Valley.
