Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Cimmaron Colorado and Corn.

This story, long overdue and continued from this post. I left Breckenridge, CO a day early to make my way to Cimmaron, CO, which would be my one night base-camp while I explored Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.  I woke up and… Continue Reading “Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Cimmaron Colorado and Corn.”

The Jolly Fox Returns.

A warm hello, to whoever out there might still be reading! I have been away for a long while and was away for a while before that it seems as well. I’ve come back to tell you all some tales of new adventures and… Continue Reading “The Jolly Fox Returns.”

Orchids of Olinda & Lilikoi Orchid Tartlets.

Warning. This post is going to have a lot of orchid photos. The first time I remember seeing orchids and hearing that word, was on the Big Island when I was a kid. We had been driving around the island all day. We met… Continue Reading “Orchids of Olinda & Lilikoi Orchid Tartlets.”

Pineapple Pie and the Island of Lanai.

On a clear day in Maui, depending on what side of the island you’re on, you can see both Oahu and the Big Island. But even if the day is not so clear, you always have a nice view of Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe.… Continue Reading “Pineapple Pie and the Island of Lanai.”

Guava Bread & Iao Valley.

On my many trips to Maui, I always find myself exploring new places and experiencing new things. One may think you would quickly run out of things to do on an island so small, but that could not be further from the truth. I,… Continue Reading “Guava Bread & Iao Valley.”

Kumu Farms & the Molokai Adventure.

While sitting comfortably and looking out from our beautiful lanai, we are not only graced with a beautiful view of the ocean, but also of the island of Molokai. When I visited Maui last fall, I was taking in the view and then started… Continue Reading “Kumu Farms & the Molokai Adventure.”

Ono Organic Farms.

I always need my farm fix. Even when I’m in a faraway land, I must know where the goods are grown. On my last trip to Maui, I visited Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm, Kula Country Farms, O’o Farm and the Maui Gold Pineapple Farm.… Continue Reading “Ono Organic Farms.”

Yingst Ranch + Pear, Quince & Wild Blueberry Pie.

Back before I went to Hawaii I made one last farm trip. I wasn’t sure if we’d find the super secret persimmon farm (future post) I had heard about upon my return. So, what I’m saying is this could have my last CA farm… Continue Reading “Yingst Ranch + Pear, Quince & Wild Blueberry Pie.”

Maui Pt 4: Places I Ate.

I should’t be writing this now because I’m totally hungry. I will probably be in some kind of ravenous beast mode when I finish this post, inhaling anything edible that comes my way. Today I wanted to share with you some of the radical… Continue Reading “Maui Pt 4: Places I Ate.”
