I’ve spent the past two weeks on Hawaii, traveling between five different islands and working on a variety of stories. I took my first ever trips to Molokai and Lanai, revisited Maui and Oahu, and conquered the Kalalau Trail on Kauai, one of the world’s toughest island hikes (despite starting and ending at sea level, it climbs and descends 5,000 feet over the course of the one-way 11-mile trek).
