I just returned from a short 3 day trip to Maui, and I wanted to share some of my photos with you of Maui's beauty. For an island so close, it has such a different a varied landscape than what I am used to on Oahu. There are no cities even close to the size of Honolulu, most towns rival the size of Kailua, or North Shore Oahu. The mountains are more rugged and have numerous valleys and peaks that glow in the morning sunlight. Mount Haleakala can be seen from all over the island and is beautiful on clear days. It is peaceful, yet inviting and the perfect place to relax and venture into the unknown.
