Down here on the South shore of Maui, Tropical Storm Olivia was yet another non-event. This morning the ocean was clear, calm, warm and beautiful.

I am so happy to be back on Maui, even though the places and people I visited the past few weeks were wonderful; but, there's no place like home.

Glorious Water

If you look closely behind the pine tree at the top of the falls, you will find Doug precariously perched near the edge. 

We also hiked to some stunning lakes yesterday. We had the very BEST time.

Fall Colors

We crossed the continental divide yesterday on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park. Brrrrr. 

Fall colors are popping up here and there. 

We hiked uphill (and uphill and uphill) this morning to a couple of Alpine lakes, but weren't quite up for any swimming.

Wyoming Hiking

Doug survived the rain and hail while out burning up the trails on the ATV yesterday. 

We were shivering while wearing every layer of clothing we brought in the below freezing temperatures this morning. 

We were downright toasty while hiking the old logging roads up here at 8500 feet today. Happy, happy.

Cabin in the Woods

We're visiting Doug's sister way high up in the mountains in Wyoming and Doug even went roaring along the trails on one of their ATV's (he's out there in a thunderstorm as I'm writing this). Fun, fun, fun.

My friends were finally able to see for themselves just how truly spectacular the ocean conditions have been this past week.

We saw lots of turtles, an interesting ray, and lots and lots of fishies.

Day Four


Still no wind, no waves and only a minimal sprinkling of rain; but some truly wonderful people.
