The demi-god, Maui is said to have snared the Sun’s rays in his fishing net as it rose over Haleakala. He made a deal to release the Sun only if the Sun promised to go slower over the Hawaiian Islands. Or so the legend goes. I’d like to think he made a deal to produce spectacular sunsets. Either way, here is a beautiful sunset as seen from Upcountry Maui.
The clouds were like thin ribbons of gold and pink. Maui produces some of the most amazing sunsets ever. Sometimes you can get lucky and see it twice in the same day by moving to a higher elevation. Which isn’t really hard to do given that in upcountry you can drive and gain several thousand feet in elevation in just a few minutes.
