October through December, 2011

Starting in mid-October, we took our little RV on a 4 week loop through Seattle, San Francisco, Hawaii (we flew from Oakland) and Lake Tahoe. On Maui we drove up Haleakala, the volcano forming the southeastern part of the island. This picture taken from several thousand feet up the mountain shows cane fields being burned prior to harvest (left) and a rainbow (right) caused by the incoming clouds that obscured our views from the top.

On returning home, we learned a bear had attacked our bear-proof garbage can at the west end of the house. The garbage can was scuffed up but intact. The bear has not returned.
