I know, I know, there’s nothing worse than somebody else’s vacation.  But…I DID take a lot of photos so, of course, YOU must suffer.  I plan to play them out in small increments so as not to be too boring.  We flew from Portland to Maui

arriving just in time…

to jump onto a 9 passenger plane (EEK)…yes, this is the pilot…

and head for Molokai

where the flight in revealed the interesting combination of climate changes that typify Molokai:  ARID
