A Short Trip to Maui

Last week Morgen and I spent a few days in Maui with Morgen’s parents. Though we were only there for three days we managed to see quite a lot of the island and visit several different towns. The Road to Hana was tempting but given the multiple-hour drive we decided to skip that well-known part of Maui. We stayed in Wailea, visited Paia, Haiku, Lahaina and Kihei and drove nearly to the top of the Haleakalā volcano. Here are a few photos from our brief stay in the fiftieth state.
