We weren't two hours on Maui and Mark, our host and guide for the three days on this beautiful island, took us on our first adventure to a "secret" spot called Chutes and Ladders.
It began with an easy stroll through some tall grass on level ground.
Then, you shimmy barefoot down this knotted rope. All the way down to the volcanic sharp rock below.
Then, you jump, dive, or flip into the secluded, calm, clear tidal pool below.
