Kauai’s Tree

This tree proudly stands on the edge of a cliff that descends hundreds of feet into the valley below. It is a checkpoint for some, encouraging them to come closer for a look down and hold onto the tree for support. For others, it is a dare. Bold climbers will lift their bodies up and perch on the dry, questionable limb, trusting their fate to the tree. Others still will walk beyond the tree, unfazed by its presence, and descend the crumbling cliff further downward until the earth makes a 90 degree turn. The view is unreal, and moments here, unforgettable.
