Rainbows and Waterfalls

Maui was our third of four Islands to visit on this ten day tour of the Hawaiian Islands. It is the second largest of the islands.

We started our day driving to the top of Haleakala crater and had a bit of a late start. Luckily for us the Clouds were just moving off the peak to give us some nice views.

A short day and a half on Maui just was not enough time. We keep realizing that ten days and four islands just is not enough time to really take in all that Hawaii has to offer.
