아는 만큼 보인다… Kauai갔다오니 이제서야 Hanalei가 눈에 번쩍 보인다..

You can only see as much as you know.. Now, I see the name of this bear is Hanalei – one more payoff from Kauai trip. 🙂

Lihue Airport

Time to get back to continent…but there was a terribly long wait – even with TSA Pre – got cleared off the security check and got the last call for the flight, although arrived at the airport nearly 1.5 hours before the flight.

국내선이니 한시간반이면 충분이라고 생각하고 왔건만 TSA Pre조차도 엄청 기다리다 결국 공항에서 냅다 뛰기로 비행기 탑승…

Ha’ena State Park: Ke’e Beach, Kalalau Trail, and Hanakapiai Beach

이번 여행의 백미 – Kalalau Trail. 말도 안될 정도의 엄격한 출입제한 정책으로 하루에 900명인가만 입장허가를 한다는데 (입장권을 판다…) 보통 한달-두달 전에 마감된다고 해서 사실 오기 전부터 몇번 시도하다가 포기하고 있었는데 전날 아침에 기적인지 실수인지 몇장이 풀려서 잽사게 표를 사서 갔다왔다..

물론 돈주고 사서 개고생..ㅎㅎ 그래도 길도 없는 바다옆 산/절벽/밀림을 왕복 3-4시간 행군하여 바닷가의 절경 감상… (아예 캠팽 Permit을 사면 더 깊숙히 들어갈수 있고 진짜 절경인 Napali에 간다고는 하는데… ㅎㅎㅎ)

Maybe the highlight of the Kauai trip was going to Kalalau Trail – which is extremely closed to public – requires reservation to get in the ‘partial’ park. This reservation is usually filled up like 2 months ago so technically we gave it up going here, but magically we happen to find few spots opened at the morning before the day we plan to go north shore. So all plan has changed 🙂

Hiking starts from the beach and go thru jungles and cliffs by the sea and last part requires crossing the fast running river (no bridge :)) to beach with furious waves..
