Skot and I took a journey to Kauai. We had planned to hike an 11 mile journey to the beach Kalalau but as we got to the 3 mile mark we were hearing that the rangers were going to be coming in within the next couple of days clearing people out that didn't have permits. Since the fine is $500, we didn't won't to risk it. Also, if we would have gotten there after 11 miles with a 35lbs backpack of gear and had to turn right around and leave I would have been quite upset...
So, we ended up leaving the island a little premature due to the fact we didn't have much else to do. This hike was the only reason we went. We did camp on two beaches though. The first at the trail head and the second at the two mile mark. Twas nice.
