A very good friend of ours, Punam Thakur of Carlsbad, New Mexico, gave me her photos taken on a tour of Maui, Hawaii.
She returned from Hawaii on the 26th of December, just a few hours before the big blizzard hit!

Soon after she got home it began to snow. This was the view from her front door the next morning (trees and her car):
Just the day before coming home she saw scenes like this on one of Hawaii's more famous beaches, Waikiki:
And just the night before she was leaving scenes like this view from her Honolulu hotel:

The promise at the top of this page was to take you to the island of Maui. So let's go there now:
Her Maui tour was the Hana Road Tour, which follows that road around part of the island and includes driving through rainforest and seeing state and national park sights including the black sand beach that exists on this island (see the link for some highlights, and also follow the next pages).
