Camping with a view.

Camping on the Island is so epic. 
Last weekend we made our way up almost to Poli Poli where the air is cold and crisp, and the sunsets are absolutely captivating. 

Here you can see pretty much the entire west end of Maui. This is looking down into the central valley where pretty much the whole population lives. 

On top of Mt. Haleakala looking down into the crater. 
This is the worlds most silent area. Crazy but true. 

Watching the sunset above the cloud lines. 
I think when people think of Hawaii beaches and palm tree's are the first thing to come to mind. I know that for me it was quit a surprise to find that on top of the mountains it is rarely over 45 degrees and winter jackets are comfortable if not necessary. The road to the top is even more surprising as you pass through rain forests to coniferous forests to grass laden field eventually turning into lava rock. It is an amazing thing to see. 

The top of Mt. Haleakala is known to be the 4th best place in the world for the viewing of stars.  Volcano's on Hawai'i make the number one place to view. 
I think it's be a pretty fun time to go sit in there for an evening and get some close ups on our solar system. 

A panorama of the crater. 
I hoped it would turn out a little better but it does give the general view as to what the most silent place in the world looks like. 

Life is fun, thanks for looking.

On top of Mt. Haleakala.

Tatum, I and a few good friends visited Mt. Haleakala this past sunday to witness a breathtaking sunset.
I haven't had a chance to go through all the photos yet but when I do I promise that I'll share.

An hour or so under the surface.

We started out on this gorgeous evening here at white rock, a famous scuba/snorkel spot on maui. 
This was mine and Tatum's first time ever going scuba diving, so of course to make things really interesting we did it at night... Awesome. I wasn't sure what I was about to take part in but I knew it was gunna be good. 

Almost dark, time to swim out. 

On top our last instructions were given by my good friend Blake Moore(the guy with the experience..) and to the bottom we went, not to come back to the surface until our air was used up. 

Fish sleep at nights! Totally new concept to me. haha. I should say that some fish sleep at nights while others eat at night, so the species that enjoy a good nights rest have to find hiding spots so they don't become dinner. This makes it really easy to approach fish and get real close, they don't swim away! 

This eel was enjoying some sleeping fish. I watched it swallow up two of these goat fish within seconds of each other. I also tried to not get too close because they have a nasty bite and are not too afraid of people. Strange and creepy. 

Eels were everywhere. 

Spanish Dancer. 

I'm not a marine biologist yet (don't think I ever will be) so I'm not to good with all the names. 
Blake saw this and he knew what it was. These are his close ups as I probably would have overlooked it as more coral. Thankfully he's pretty good with these things and new to take a closer look at this spanish dancer. 

Puffer fish. 

Surprisingly not that pokey. I bumped into it and thought it was going to hurt, but it was actually pretty soft. I doubt it'd be very soft in my throat though... 

It's awesome down there. 
Thanks to Blake for the instruction and letting me play with his camera. 
Hope to do this more often.

Happy 4th.


It's that time of the year again.. my favorite part, summer and all the good times to go with it. 
Happy 4th of July to you all! Hope you had a great day enjoying some warm sunny weather somewhere in this beautiful world. 

Some waves to go with the day. :) 

I got to watch the fire works in Lahaina, Maui, HI, with my wonderful wife Tatum. 
These photos don't do the scene justice.. last night was waayyy more beautiful than I know how to make photos appear. 

Some fireworks with friends after the show.. This home made boat was built pretty much 100% out of roman candles and sparklers. It sank. 

 Hope your night was epic also.
