A few months ago, Luke and I jumped at the opportunity to visit Ascension Island, an isolated, 34-square mile rock in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean. You would assume a place so remote and so tiny wouldn’t offer much in the way of amusement, but the island truly captured our imaginations and showed us that there are adventures to be had in every nook and cranny of this world.
My very favorite things we did on Ascension Island were the Letterbox Walks. Of the 42 hikes total on the island, each varying in difficulty, location, and terrain, we chose a few of the toddler-friendly ones to complete. We had a blast searching for the letterbox along each route, signing the log book, and collecting the stamps.
Rupert Path, a beautiful, lush trail on Green Mountain, was the very first walk we tackled. We were instantly hooked and spent much of the rest of our visit on the trails in search of more letterboxes.
Stay tuned for more photos in my Destination: Ascension Island series. I plan to share my favorites before my next trip to the island in February.
