Kalaupapa, Molokai, Hawaii
Tags: hiking, hawaii
Kalaupapa peninsula is at the base of the world's highest seacliffs, and home to a former leprosy village. I was sent on a pilgrimage to collect a medal of St. Damien, a priest who spent his life sequestered with those discriminated against and suffering with leprosy. The friend who paid for the trip said I'd be going on a 6mi hike, round trip. She forgot to mention the seacliffs!
