Upcountry Walk

We went on a beautiful upcountry (that means part-way up Haleakala) walk yesterday, enjoying the cooler temperatures at 3000 ft elevation (it was about 73F compared to Kihei's 89F), but humid and overcast. Actually, it was perfect, except for my kids' whining, 'are we there yet?'

We ended up having lunch at Ulupalakua's General Store, a quick wine tasting at Maui's Winery, and coffee and carrot cake at.... can you guess?

where is this? Any guesses?

do you know where that picture was taken?

Have a look at those pictures?

There are a number of them with an older woman...

oh all right, it's at Grandma's Coffee House. A great destination for a beautiful drive! And they grow/roast their own coffee beans!
