Well our last few days in Hawaii were busy.  Two days down in Hana and a couple of trips up to the Haleakala Crater.  Gotta say the drive to Hana was beautiful!  But, the highlight was a visit to the Seven Sacred Pools just a short distance past the town – just flat gorgeous!  As is the hike above the pools to Waimoku Falls. Both should be at the top of any visitors list of things to see while in Maui.  While there, we were lucky enough to have one of our few sunsets.  If you look close you can see the highway just above the upper falls.

This was Saturday night.  We are now back in Alaska where the forecast is for lows down to zero and winds of 50-60 mph.  Standing in this stream in my shorts and sandals seems like a different life time!

  6. Beautiful, beautiful! Looks like an imaginary spot! I must say, the 7 Sacred Pools in Hawaii have the ones here in Sedona beat. Nice that you had some time in warm weather before the winter really sets in in Alaska.

  8. Such a beautiful place Ron. I love the reflections also, and the foreground rocks that lead to the lush green environment. The photo communicates quite a bit about the geology and habitat here.
