Should I get up or roll back over?
Of course I don’t want the regret, so I pop up and am out the door in 10 mins flat. I know I have to start the trek by 6:30am to inch my way upward through the numerous switchbacks to achieve the summit prior to the fireball cresting over the horizon.
To no surprise due to my inability to function prior to 7am, I had forgotten my headlamp so I forged ahead just hoping not to misstep and cause a scene. Twilight guides the way and after a few sets of stairs and an eery tunnel, I join the groves of tourists patiently waiting for this spectacle way above the pristine beaches of Waikiki.
And it didn’t disappoint, as the sky lit up beautifully amidst the sliver of clouds hovering along the horizon. I was mesmerized once again.
It never gets old….
