Haleakula Crater

Sorry to bore you more with our travels. Back to Maui. Donna and I took a 4 hour horsebackride 3000 ft down from the 10,000 summit of Haleakula ( Our boats namesake) to pay hommage as Irene barreled up the coast at our Haleakula.

First picture is of West Maui from , feet

Our asses hurt after the 4 hour ride. My horse, Bubba...no lie.. was pissed he had to carry me, and Donna horse Lucy...was a dingbat.

The ride was starkley beautiful in its desolation and the plant is the silversword and blooms once in a lifetime...only grows in Haleakula and is endangered. Haleakula is a federal park.
