October in Photos

Posted by: Kim Steutermann Rogers
Destination: Maui
Nov 02, 2013



In October, I became a full-fledged breadfruit fanatic. I mean, who wouldn’t, after tasting John Cadman’s dairy-free, egg-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, a.k.a. guilt-free, lilikoi `ulu pie. I also discovered an appreciation for beer. Or, at least, the Maui Brewing Co., because of their commitment to the Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. And I sampled some of Maui’s famous banana bread at Julia’s in Kahakuloa. But, alas, I arrived too late to determine whether I liked Julia’s better than Aunty Sandy’s in Keanae along the Road to Hana. Of course, that just means I’ll have to go back;-)

And while I’d hoped to hike Waikamoi Preserve to see an endangered Maui forest bird—the Parrotbill—or two, I was thwarted in that endeavor by a chained and locked gate at Haleakala National Park due to the infamous government shut-down. Instead, I discovered another hike—Waihou Spring Trail above the cool climes of Makawao. It didn’t offer any of Maui’s endemic forest birds, but it did provide a rich collection of interesting trees—more specifically, tree bark.

All this is reflected in the slide show above that recounts my October in photographs.
