By definition the tropics are wet, rain keeps the vegetation lush and abundant. Coming here in the rainy season, we knew what to expect. Turns out we’re here during a particularly rainy stretch. We even got rain on the “dry” side of Maui where typically the grass crunches underfoot. Rain showers are often short but intense, and it seems to rain just as we’re about to do something.
So instead of spending time on the beach we’re exploring the island. We hiked muddy trails and drove wet roads. We experienced rain under full sun and saw amazing rainbows. We walked in a secret cave created by a lava tube. We discovered spectacular views – crashing ocean waves, steep mountains, unexpected valleys and two-way roads only wide enough for one car.
Here are some photos of Maui, under rain and sun.
