it may not be the most popular time of year to visit maui, but the weather was tropical, everything was in bloom, and the trees served as flower girls.
our first stop was hana. the road to hana was slow, twisted, and dripping with scenic splendor.
the lava flowed down to the sea where it was beat back by the wind.
we got up early and hiked through bamboo forests to gigantic waterfalls at haleakala national park.
we were the first ones there!
next stop - lahaina. hey - i have seen this view on t-shirts before!
kevin played (really really well...like 400 yard drives...draining 30 footers...) golf at the plantation course at kapalua.
we saw unnecessary fountains under basement stairwells.
we spent the last few days with fambly from denver in the bustling hippie town of paia.
catching waves, watching turtles, looking for sharks, eating like kings, playing with the keiki.
it was a great trip, worth the looooooooong haul to and fro. hang loose!
