On the road to Haleakala, a 10,000-foot dormant volcano in Maui. Here is our rental car license plate. We realized fairly quickly that the spot-the-license-plate game we used to play on road trips while on family vacations wouldn't work in Hawaii. It's the only state in the Union where you won't find people driving their own cars with their own state license plates. Even Alaska is within driving distance for many people.
Mom with the hibiscus bush behind our condo. She has successfully grown these at home in Minnesota, although they have to be taken inside for the winter.
The view of west Maui from the road up the side of Haleakala. That's not smog - we are already climbing into the clouds.

Along the way we passed through the town of Kula and C pulled over so I could snap this photo. We will stop here for lunch on the way down.
