    Can You Find The Hammock?

    this shot was taken from the upper peak of Hihimanu in Hanalei, Kauai. grueling 4 hour hike, then attacked at nite by unknown bird. there is a 40/50 mph gusting taking place when a cloudburst comes thru. what you see in the picture is a HH expedition asym. stayed dry and cozy except for attack from the bird at 2 am
    if you want to give it a try we will forward coords and advice.

    Bet it was windy! That's one heckuva great site!

    Only two tees on that peak. I'm sure the bird was surprised to have a visitor.

    One of the coolest hang spots I've ever seen.
