Still posting on auto, but since I'm on Maui, I thought I'd share some pictures from the one other time I was in the Islands, on the Big Island.
That trip was mostly about volcanoes:
|Kiluea Volcano. It wasn't real active when we were there--no lava into the sea, but there was steam and a glow.|
One of the amazing things is how the plants manage to colonize the new lava fields. Lots of rain probably helps!
|I have no idea what this is, but it's cool.|
Leave those lava fields long enough, and they turn into this:
|How cool are the giant ferns?|
Of course, a trip to Hawai'i wouldn't be complete without some time on the beach.
|Even teens like building castles for the waves to destroy.|
|Beautiful water at the Place of Refuge. We snorkled near here.|
Because we don't do things like most people, this was one of our Hawai'ian condos...
And all that time at the beach, you can't forget the realities of the coastline...
|The sign as you go the other way shows someone running toward the giant killer wave...|
|A sobering reminder.|

See you next week!
