Maui: Day 5

by Amy, July 29, 2014
Today was supposed to be our day out of the sun.

We started with a trip up the western coast of Maui to check out some 'dragons teeth'.    These teeth formed when the wind and the waves hit the lava as it was forming.  


Quinn had some fun exploring.





The labyrinth made for a nice family activity.


It was windy!


Then we were off to do some ziplining.  Most places required children to be over the age of 8 so I was happy to find this place.   



Quinn was so excited!  btw, did you notice his cool tiki necklace?



We got to the top of the first one and it was windy and high.  I felt a little trepidation but when they asked who wanted to go first, Quinn raised his hand.  This particular place was good because they had dual ziplines so we could go in pairs.  


Don tried to do some videos but it was tough because you didn't have alot of control over which way you were facing.

He got this video of Quinn and I coming in for a landing.  This was a shorter/lower line and they encouraged us to let go with our hands but that wasn't for me.  I liked holding on to the handlebars :)  However Don did a backwards "trust fall".  Yikes!!




Then it was on to our next adventure.  We went to Haleakala which is a dormant volcano that last erupted 400 - 500 years ago.

On our way up, still below the clouds.


Above the clouds at 10.000 ft elevation.   It was like we were on a different planet.  Definitely worth the drive.





You really felt like you were on top of the world.





This plant only grows in this location so they are working hard to preserve it.  It matched the unworldly feeling of the terrain.



A fun adventurous day!
