It’s a long, hard, steep, into-the-jungle climb to the glorious rooftop of American Samoa, on the island of Pago Pago ... to the top of Mt. Alava—one of those trails that shows you what you are made of (or not made of!) And the view from up there ... I couldn’t decide which image to post first here, but figured if I have to work for the view, so do you. 😉 Slide forward! America’s 50th National Park, @np_american_samoa in American Samoa, established by the @nationalparkservice on October 31, 1988. .

Nature is neat 🌿 — Mt. ‘Alava trail — This hike starts just outside the picture on the upper left and follows the top of the ridge all the way to the top of Mt. ‘Alava. . . . . . . #americansamoa #mtalava #pagopago #fagasa #pickyourpark #nationalpark #nationalparkofamericansamoa #hike #explore #foreveryoungathart

I took advantage of kid at school time today, and spent 3 hours listening to birds, wind, and whatever else Mt Alava offered me. While the view from the top is STUNNING, you could hear the harbor noise. Once your dropped back down into the tree cover of the ridge, it was quiet as can be. No curious voices questioning ever little thing, only the rainforest was speaking. While I love answering hundreds of questions an hour during a hike, sometimes you just need the opposite to keep you fueled 🌴 . . . . #americansamoa #hikingadventures #mtalava #peaceandquiet #recharge #southpacificislands #chasingabandon
The 3 hour hike was worth it! #sore #AmericanSamoa #mtalava #tvtransmitter #islandlife

Please be a sunny day. Thank you BJ & Eternity ! It was FUUUUN! PS if you don’t know the hand sign, we can’t be friends lmao . #mtalava #fagasa #hike #americansamoa #anime #guild #Natsu

National Park of American Samoa. I know I’ve posted this picture before, but I couldn’t exclude it from this list of the Top 7 Places in American Samoa. The park has much to offer, including hiking, bird watching, snorkeling, diving, and home stays. Hikes range from easy to difficult, so there’s something for everyone. This view from the top of Mt Alava is part of an intermediate, 8 mile hike along the ridge of this mountain range.

My feet and legs hurt for days after this hike, but the view from the top is breathtaking. #Repost @worldteach (@get_repost ) ・・・ Today’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, there’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

Following the Mount 'Alava trail to the top. It was one of the most beautiful walks I have ever done. This is all thanks to the wonder of nature and the dedicated team working for the Samoan Samoan National Park Service. #pagopago #americansamoa #mtalava #iloveamericansamoa # mtalavatrail #visitamericansamoa #ilovepagopago #ig_americansamoa_ #igamericansamoa #ig_americansamoa #lifeisgood #amazingcaptures #amazing_captures #amazingcapture #ig_americansamoa__ #reel_club #capturinggratitude #openmyworld #noviewsindoors #lstworld #阿皮亚 #サモア #萨摩亚 #캔버라 #萨摩亚 #cамоа #ساموا
