On top of the Island. Miss you, American Samoa๐Ÿ˜˜ excuse the weave๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚ #mtalava #tb2015
My feet and legs hurt for days after this hike, but the view from the top is breathtaking. #Repost @worldteach (@get_repost ) ใƒปใƒปใƒป Todayโ€™s hiking theme concludes with the mother of all hikes-Mt. Alava. There are a couple of ways to get to the top of Mt. Alava. You have the choice of walking on a path, climbing up and down the rope ladders, or a combination of both. I was not brave enough to take on the rope ladders. As a reward for making it to the top, thereโ€™s a book to sign your name. We were hot and sweaty once we got to the top, so naturally we decided to plank. #worldteach #volunteer #globalcitizen #teachabroad #teachoverseas #americansamoa #amerikasamoa #hikingadventures #islandlife #mtalava #theviewfromthetopisamazing #plank

Josh and I hiked 6-7 miles up Mt. Alava with some friends today. It was not easy, but well worth it for the beautiful views. #youmeandthepacific #handstandsforever #ontopoftheworld #mtalava

#Repost @worldteach with @repostapp ใƒปใƒปใƒป There are a lot of outdoor adventures to be found on this little island. You can hike to the Nu'uuli waterfall, discover what lives under the surface of the ocean while snorkeling, or climb rope ladders to Mt. Alava. There's always a way to get out and enjoy the island sights. ***side note: I never used the rope ladder to get to the top or bottom of Mt. Alava. I took the regular path up and down, which is about 7 miles round trip.*** #worldteach30 #volunteer #globalcitizen #worldteachamericansamoa #americansamoa #amerikasamoa #nuuulifalls #mtalava #snorkeling #islandlife #islandadventures

Views from the 684. It's crazy how much personal growth occurs over the span of just one year. Countless adventures. Unforeseen hardships. Replaced friends. Cherished memories. Through it all, I've realized... you are the emotions you embody. Google can't save us. The answer to life isn't found on social media. The foundation to our paths must be grounded on real life triumphs and tragedies. Only then will we truly find ourselves. Cheers to the next summer ahead of us. May we all endure, encourage, and elevate each other to the best of our abilities! #PacificRoots ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ธ
#FindYourPark to explore and learn this special place. The national park of American Samoa protects three types of paleotropical rainforest (lowland, montane, and cloud) which support a rich diversity of native and endemic species, and 2 species of fruit bats ("pe'a") the only native mammals indigenous to American Samoa. #SailiLouPaka #NPWest #NPSCentennial #NPS100 #NPSCentennialCountdown #AmericanSamoa #Samoa #Samoan #MtAlava #Tutuila #PagoPago
