This is a sketchbook I did while on vacation on the Hawaiian Island of Maui in 2008.  We were escaping a big storm in San Diego that week, so it felt great to be in the tropics.

Hiking up in the Io Valley is a treat, shrouded in clouds up top with the sun piercing through the forest a little lower.  The natural beauty is unbelievable.
