The best opportunities don’t have paths

On the way up the fairy pools there was a giant volcano with a huge crack down the middle.
The “crack of God” as I’m calling it.
It wasn’t on the map.
The path stops at the top of the fairy pools.

Of course, I wanted to get up close to that crack and poke my head in.

The best spots don’t have paths.

It’s not obvious, but you can just wild hike up to the crack then walk right in to the mountain.

💡Keep going until there is no clear path. There’s less people here, so that’s where the hidden opportunities are.
