To the mountains.
You know guys, Local Sugar Hawaii is so very much all about the sweetest things in life and in Hawaii that clearly means the sea and the beach but it also means the mountains.
The Ko`olau range that cuts right through O`ahu is just so breathtakingly beautiful and geesh is it awe inspiring. From the waterfalls that run off of it's narrow cliffs to the streams that carve through it's slopes to the lush tropical forests and pools of sweet mountain water... my goodness is there sweetness to be found in our mountains.
But, despite what we might like to believe our mountains are not the only ones in this whole wide world and in fact for a time between sixteen and seventeen I spent a year attending, or barely attending as it happened, school in the foothills of the majestic Rocky Mountains. My goodness I so do wish I had had the presence of mind to wander up those mountain roads just a bit more while they were literally out my back door. And if I had I would have breathed in more deeply, really truly is there anything like the crisp mountain air rushing in and filling you right up to bursting with each breath.
Sometimes I wonder about sponsored posts and sometimes I say no to sponsored posts just because, well, you know I kind of like this thing we have going here between you and me and the stories we share. But sometimes a thing will drop into my in box and I'll think, "oh, if I were on the mainland the boys and I would so do that" and this is one of those things.
If it suits you and your family I hope you'll go out and carve out a moment this summer in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. And, if you do I hope you'll come back and share all about your adventures here so that I might live through your moments and well just kind of, imagine I am wandering up that mountain trail with ya and breathing in that elevated air. Here's what USA Family Guide would like ya to know:
