West Maui in July

July 2nd, 2011

We ventured out to Lahaina on the west side today. It seems to me the last time we made the trek–not all that long ago–the hills were still charred from the last wildfire. Evidently, spring rains have produced a new crop of tinder dry summer grass:

In the photo below, Haleakala volcano’s green slope rises beyond the dry coast of West Maui. I’m guessing the green band is roughly 3000 to 3500 feet above sea level on this 10,000-foot mountain.

    It’s beautiful, sorta reminds me of “LOST”. I can see why real estate values are high in Hawaii, you live in beautiful country. Thanks for sharing.

    You know, I didn’t watch “Lost.” I missed a cultural phenomenon. Again. 🙂
