Haleakala NP, Maui, HI
My heart goes out to all those affected by the latest natural disasters on Hawai'i. While there, I traveled directly through that area and interacted with some of its people and it's hard to imagine it being utterly destroyed. A harrowing reminder of nature's power.
This is a photo of an absolutely massive banyan tree on Maui. For scale, my head would maybe reach the bottom of the large low branch. It was taken on the lower part of Haleakala National Park (where my last couple of volcanic photos were from), but closer to the ocean. After bailing on the cold, windy summit, we drove a long, bumpy, and beautiful country road to a relatively secluded tropical rainforest and coastal area. You can never go wrong with secluded paradise! This was the first time I can recall being in a tropical rainforest and I now know the meaning of sweaty.
