Koko Head Crater
  1. While I hike often, I've been intimidated by this .8 mile crater hike because it is composed entirely of "stairs."

    The stairs are actually an old railroad track
  2. It's pretty uneven, and some of the steps are spaced far apart.

  3. Not even half way up, I was feeling it, for sure.

  4. My dog, Hercules, is a total badass and really blew me away with how happily he hopped from one "step" to the next.

  5. This was maybe half way.
