CHASING PALM TREES VOL.6 / MAUI, HI
Maui, is an Island that is sprawling with natural tropical forests, waterfalls, and an abundance of nature. The island’s towering mountains split in two by a sprawl of grassland. From the beaches to the peaks, it is a sight that one can only look at in awe of the power of nature and its beauty. We traveled the width of the island via car over a period of two days, taking as many photos as possible. Maui’s mountains are carved by water. Rain turns to streams turns to rivers that are enveloped in the sounds of wildlife and cool mountain breezes. The drip drop of the mountain runoff that courses through the treelined forests quiets the soul and brings one peace of mind. The local wildlife is full of vibrant colors and many variety of flora, almost creating a sensory overload. However, of the sights to be seen, the most amazing views in Maui are the convergence of sky and sea across the horizon. The hues of orange, yellow, and deep purples that occur when the sky meets the deep blue ocean at sunset is a view that is so unreal that it has forever stolen our heart.
