The old country road took turns past the sugar cane and pineapple fields. We climbed up the mountain to far, far away from tourist filled areas of the island. High on the hill near the cows, goats, donkeys, and chickens sat our home for the next eight days.
We were indeed getting away from it all.
– No internet.
– No landline.
– No stores.
– No neighbors.
At 7,000 feet elevation you can see pretty darn far. It was only another 3,000 feet to the summit of Haleakala (Maui’s 10,000 foot volcano) but I wasn’t keep on making the trip to the tourist filled location. I was content to just hang out with the family.
Look at the view; who wouldn’t be content?
