Harpo sayz:
This summer, my parents celebrate 45 years of marriage. (Holy cow!) In commemoration, Groucho and I were invited to party with the family in Maui in mid-June. The trip was amazing on a number of scores. But one particular highlight was an impromptu hike up Waihee Ridge. My nephew Riley, and my dad Gerry opted to go with us, and I was delighted to be able to share our walking-practice with them. I hope this was the first of many Edwards-family intergenerational hikes.

The trail was well graded, and had views that started out great and only grew in grandeur up the ridge. It only took 85 minutes to hike up, but we took several breaks to ensure everyone’s morale and hydration levels remained high. The descent was 45 minutes. Gerry jogged most of the way down – we tried to keep up.
