Backyard adventures

This post is not for people to go and do.  There is a lot of risk involved in this activity compared to others I write about. 

I've had an awesome opportunity to do some high angle rope work in waterfalls on a neighbor island.  I had the most awesome time exploring places that people never get to set foot on unless you have equipment and the skill to get to and from these places SAFELY.

Clermontia sp. dot the side of the stream we go down. 

The group prepares for their first wet canyon of the weekend. 

Coming down waterfalls and swimming across cold pools of water is a must. 

Kicking back and enjoying what many people dream of. 

Some decide to use the rope while others jump from high places. 

Another native plant is near where we come down.  Cyrtandra sp.

The group anchoring and getting ready for a four person rappel and one guided rappel. 

This is what it looked like. 
Mist from the waterfall created a rainbow near the bottom of the rappel. 

This is me in action. 

Weird aquatic life.  Could possibly be a dragonfly nymph? 


One of the rappels swung you into a cave.
