If a one-day car trip up to Haleakala is too much for you, it’s easy to just get a 3-day pass and go camping in its forests. Lots of trails, and plenty to see.
Pailoa Bay is a stunning contrast of colors. Brilliant blue water, bright and lush green flora…and sheer black beaches. I’ll never forget it.
While I was hiking on Mt. Diablo, I was struck by the color contrast on some of the tree bark.
