Looking up from the Iao valley.
A silversword, a species of plant found only around the Haleakala volcano in Maui.
Looking out onto the Haleakala volcano’s crater, 10,000 feet above sea level. The landscape all around looked like how I imagine Mars to look, with charred clumps of hardened lava everywhere.
Heading back to Lahaina after two hours of whale-watching.

One of the quirky shopfronts on Front Street, Lahaina.
The Big Banyan tree off Front Street. We walked up to the tree just in time to see a lovely outdoor exhibit of artwork, jewelry and photographs, all the stalls positioned under the sweeping branches of the tree.
