But instead of rotting fish, the trail smells like rotting fruit.
Instead of mosquitos, there are fruit flies.
Instead of stopping to pick wild cranberries, I stop to shake a guava tree and catch the ripe ones that fall out.
And instead of finding snow and ice and Dall sheep at the top of the mountain, I find a view of this green green island and the blue blue ocean all around.
Welcome to Hawaii.
