on a sunday morning during our stay in american samoa we climbed mount alava with jade and eduard, our sailor friends from korea.
this was a 5 hour hike through a trail on the ridge of the mountain. from the top we could see both sides of the island, when fog permitted of course. the way down was a challenging path of steps with a rope to be used to hold on because of how steep some of the steps were. when we reached the bottom of the mountain we were in a different village from the one we started. lucky for us a local pick up truck gave us a ride and we did not have to walk back 12 miles to the boat.
