High Park Fire

A week and a half spent on Maui, Hi.

Jocelyn and I went for a trip to Maui, Hi. this past month.  This trip really was a combo trip, honeymoon, birthday trip and wedding anniversary all wrapped into one.  Jocelyn and I really didnt take a honeymoon so our trip together was special.

For several weeks before the trip I was taking private photography lessons with Skippy at:

I really feel that with his help I have made some progression with my photography, but I am always looking to learn more.

Enclosed are several of the pictures from our trip and I hope you enjoy the view.  Now back to some fly fishing!

 Wasabu,  sticky rice with Spam.  Love the stuff, get it a a 7-11 or in Foodtown.  Just 99 cents, easily the cheapest food on the island but so worth it.
 Jocelyn took this one on one of our daily walks along the beach. Behind me is the Mana Kai Maui condo's where we stayed.




Haleakala National Park
This special place vibrates with stories of ancient and modern Hawaiian culture and protects the bond between the land and its people. The park also cares for endangered species, some of which exist nowhere else. Come visit this special place - renew your spirit amid stark volcanic landscapes and sub-tropical rain forest with an unforgettable hike through the backcountry.


 The green avocado looking fuit is called Pineapple Gauva.  A bit bitter at first but the middle is delicious.



Flowers flowers everywhere.  Such variety and the scent of flowers everywhere we went. Wish we could bottle the scent up and take it home.




 One of the best snorkel sites on the island.   Mokapu and Ulua are two beaches separated by a nice little snorkel point. This is a nice place for the family, especially if you are staying in the Wailea area.

 We took a helicopter ride around the entire island.  This is the best way to really see all there is to see on Maui.  Just incredible!

  1. Being a Hawaii native, I must correct you on your reference to a musubi as a "wasabu." Also being part Japanese, I can say that word does not exist. That's a spam musubi, something I really wish I had right about now since I no longer live in Hawaii. Good times. I hope you guys enjoyed em.

  2. Oh man, your right, I spelled it incorrectly. Thanks for pointing that out to me. I also loved eating musubi. I have even made some when we returned to Colorado.
    Thanks for viewing my blog.
