In the upcountry area where we’re staying, on the slopes of Haleakala volcano, there are also lots of cattle grazing, occasional goats, roosters crowing morning ’til night, and many barking dogs protecting their owner’s turf when two walkers stop to snap a few pictures.
Here is a sampling of the most exotic flowers we saw on a short walk this afternoon. (We won’t even mention the hibiscus and bouganvillia in every color imaginable.)
Aren’t they amazing? I hope the sight of them warms the chilled bones of my friends back home.
