Pololu Valley Lookout
Hike time: 20 mins. Not the kind of beach you go to for basking and bathing the day away, but a tranquil place of contemplation in a wild, lush, untamed and unpopulated valley at the north end of Hawaii’ Island. Most tourists opt to visit Waipi’o Valley so this is a great place for seclusion, I didn’t see anyone else when I was there but noticed that some campsites had been setup at some point so it might be a great option for an overnight stay. To get there drive north on Highway 270 until you get to a the end and you will be rewarded with a gorgeous view over Pololu valley and the rugged Kohala Coast. From there I highly suggest taking the hike down to the beach. The trail is a rough switchback, dropping 400 feet rather quickly so you should be moderately fit or the way up will be a challenge. The valley is privately owned so you should stay close to the beach. You can cross the stream 80-120 feet inland and can usually find a stone ford in that area to cross easily. It’s not recommended that you swim here as the beach lies at the channel connecting Hawaii and Maui, bringing strong currents and rip tides, even the strongest swimmers can easily be caught and swept away.
Morning I wanted to go to Reflection Lake again. As I was heading to the reflection lake I stopped at the Inspiration point, the sun was just coming up and lightning up the mountain across the road. I stopped there and clicked some landscapes also did a timelapse. After one hour, I headed towards reflection lake, to my surprise reflection lake was filling with ice and there was barely any reflection.After breakfast, I started driving towards Redmond to my cousins place, I had few stops at the huge bridge over Nisqually River and Nahunta Falls.I had reached Redmond by around 2 PM. Had lunch, took some rest and drove to Snoqualmie Falls along with my Cousin’s family. Clicked some long exposure shots there and returned to Redmond. At around 10 AM I left Redmond and drove to Sequim.
Apart from being one of the best ways to get your bearings in Rio, a trip up the Sugar Loaf Mountain (Pâo de Açúcar) is also a way of enjoying some of the most spectacular views on earth. From time to time shows by major Brazilian artists are held on the Morro da Urca, where revellers can dance the night away and watch the city's lights glittering below them by night.
Rocky Mountain National Park
If you plan to visit Colorado, a great stop would have to be Rocky Mountain National Park. This park was established in 1915 to preserve and celebrate the amazing splendor and natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. If you enjoy hiking, this park has a very large number of trails at varying altitudes from 9,000-13,000 feet up that are great for hiking. If you enjoy watching the wildlife, there is an incredible level of biodiversity present in this park, with a variety of birds and other animals, such as elk, to view from a distance.For wildlife spotters, the elk aren't shy.Lakes are main attractions.
