Happy Mother’s Day! Let’s Go to Maui!
Happy Mother’s Day to All! So how about a trip to Maui!
You will enjoy Maui. It has a true island feel to it …Along with lots of vegetation changes. With the above capture we are at sea level. Gorgeous! However, we can’t stay we need to drive up to 10,300 ft. ! Grab a jacket you’re going to need it!
Lush, green mountains and the beautiful sea surround us for about an hour.
The ocean becomes a distant memory as we ascend.
Our GPS shows us that we are in for a ride! Constant curves and turns though green fields at first.
Then trees line our drive.
22 miles of more winding road until we get to Haleakala Crater. (This volcano is dormant unlike the one that is causing problems on the big island.)
As we continue to climb …Once again the vegetation changes.
Lava lined hills on either side of us.
The volcano is in our sight!
There were plenty of craters within the crater.
These plants were everywhere.
These plants are called Silversword and grow tall. They are striking as they appear silver on the dark landscape. They are an endangered species.
Of course a selfie has to be taken!
The views were stunning to say the least! It was windy and cold so the descent begins. Back down the curved roads, through the changing vegetation and then a stop along the way to see some beautiful gardens.
