On Maui

We drove to the summit of the Haleakala volcano and the day was bright and sunny as you can see from the picture of myself and my mother-in-law. I was struck by the raw beauty of the site and of the awesome power of nature, and could appreciate the views of the ancient people who saw the top of the volcano has a sacred place.

As Mark Twain wrote, "I went to Maui to stay a week and remained five. I never spent so pleasant a month before, or bade any place goodbye so regretfully. I have not once thought of business, or care or human toil or trouble or sorrow or weariness, and the memory of it will remain with me always." I have to agee with his analysis and I will be back.
