Woman's Journey Into the Wildnerness Almost Ends Her Life

By 1 year ago

Hiking can be a relaxing way to connect with nature and get some exercise, but for one woman, it was an activity that would put her life at risk. She thought nothing would go wrong on a normal walk through the wilderness, but when she was out there things took a quick turn for the worst. After a few bad decisions and unlucky occurrences, this brave woman found herself in a life or death situation...

Amanda's Journey

On May 8th, 2019 Amanda Eller's life was forever changed. The 35-year-old physical therapist and yoga instructor was a resident of Hawaii. She loved living a life by the ocean, and the location definitely had its perks. One of her favorite pastimes was walking along the many intricate trails that go through the dense forestry of the islands. She decided one day to wander through the Makawao Forest...


Makawao Forest Reserve

The hike wasn't exactly meant for beginners. The long and arduous hike was certainly one that would take a little more skill than Amanda was used to. The forest covers about 2,000 acres. On this land, visitors will find dangerous ravines, lava rocks, interwoven ferns, dense vegetation, and other natural elements that might require a machete to chop through... 

No Wrong Turns

Amanda was determined to complete the trail as normal. Even though her friends warned her that if she made any wrong turns she might not get out alive, but Amanda felt pretty confident that she could follow the marked path. Plus, it was only 2.7 miles away from any civilization, so in the worst-case scenario, she could just walk back to there...right?
