TWO HAWAIIAN SKIES


Hawaii was a trip. It definitely takes the cake when it comes to beautiful (and frequent) natural displays, no matter where you look. In a lot of ways, it reminded me of Oregon, but a miniature, more psychedelic and extreme version, like a crazy little biology experiment. Here, we have the rainforest, the desert, the mountains, the ocean, and Maui had the same- except it’s like a fantasyland version, with stranger plants, colorful ocean creatures, paradise beaches and like fifty rainbows per day. Duh, right? I guess it sound stupid to wax poetic over a place that is OBVIOUSLY beautiful and that’s why everyone goes there, but I still feel like it exceeded my expectations.

We saw beautiful sunsets every night, but the one that we watched from inside a cloud (after descending Haleakala, but still in the mountains) was truly amazing. dalas posted a set of our digital photos here, you have to look at them!! Every time I look at these photos I still can’t really believe how incredible it was. Once we made it inside the mountain cloud, it wasn’t long before we had to pull over so that we could run out into the field and really take in what was happening. I wish we had a video, too. I joked that it was like smoke-bomb nature photos, except real (aka my perfect, pastel-covered dreamworld). The sun set once, falsely, behind a thick cloud, only to emerge and set again on the horizon. So when I die, bury me next to TWO sunsets.

The funny thing is, this sunset wasn’t even special or unique. We saw really similar photos on the Maui visitor channel (aka best, most hilarious channel) from another day. This is just what happens.

    Really lovely shots. I visited Maui about a year and a half ago and it was such a lovely place, though so strangely Americanized I could never live there.

    Yeah, totally! It would be weird to live there and be so involved with tourist culture, whether you want to or not.

    I’ve seen two total solar eclipses. One in Altai Mountains in Siberia, one – the longest total solar eclipse of the century – in Varanasi in India. Nothing compares to that feeling! Like the planet stands still…
