Aloha Kakahiaka

Good morning! As we start our day here in Illinois with the first snow of the season, I wanted to share with you some photos from our honeymoon to the beautiful island of Maui.

We signed up to Bicycle down Haleakala - the bad part was getting up at 2:00 a.m. - the nice part was the incredible views and watching the sunrise at 10,000 feet!

Here we are ready to bike down -wish us luck! It was actually a little frightening for me and I was happier on the second leg of the ride. When I was little, I had a major wipe-out on my bike on an oiled dirt road - I had dirt, rocks and oil embedded in my shins, elbows and palms.

I'm on top of the world!

We made it! Here we are 28 miles later at sea level, Baldwin Beach in Paia.

We had a wonderful honeymoon. We took our car on "the road to Hana" - what a blast we had! We went with another couple that we met at our hotel and stopped off at waterfalls and beaches along the way.

It was a nice day, watching the sunrise from 10,000 feet and watching the sunset on the beach in Lahaina!

Have a great day, Mahalo!
