Mysterious and Wonderful

Hiking through Maui's redwood forest is always weird because of the deafening silence. There is a total lack of sound: no birds, no wind, no nothing.

Then just below the redwoods are the deciduous trees which are loaded with birds and which sough in the breeze. And my favorite part, the dilapidated ranger's cabin and nearby bunkhouse. The ranger's cabin is surrounded by a sea of hydrangea which has taken over the entire clearing. Both buildings are falling apart but still contain remnants of their past, like a pie safe and rusted-through bunk bed springs hanging from wooden bed frames. They are both mysterious and wonderful.
