Close to 40% of the island consists of a a very inhospitable area called the Alakai swamp (elevation 1,500 - 4,000 feet); my family and I explored and crossed the "Alakai" at least 50 times or more (sometimes camping for up to 2 weeks at a time with six kids and my wife and I.)

In 1961 my wife and I spent our honeymoon in Kalalau Valley - a remote valley on the island accessible only by boat or an 11 mile trail along cliff edges, etc. I miss doing those things, but with the family scattered to the four winds and me getting older, I haven't really hiked in years.
Brother George!

Being out in God's Creation is definitely a great time...sounds like you're out there in Hawaii or the Pacific? Lucky you...Being here in Connecticut we have a lot of camping and mountains for hiking...but Maine is my true passion...God's Country.

Mt. Katahdin is a true blessing...I love it in Maine.
