Maunalei Arboretum Trail

Yesterday a group of us from our church, hiked 
Maunalei Arboretum.  The clouds rolled in and some fat rain drops made their way through the canopy cooling us as we walked.

can you see the coffee beans?

new coffee plant shoots

technically I think they are called berries
Laura got put on the spot because we all wanted
    to photo her in this pose!
a new fern unfolding

what a terrific view from the top of the trail

but it is not the top of the island, 
can you read the sign where it says this is one of the wettest places in the world?

 When I look up at West Maui, I often think of this psalm that speaks of God's provision, I love the whole psalm but will use this - 

Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God,
which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.

Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly:  thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof:  

Thou crownest the year with thy goodness, and thy paths drop fatness.  

They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.  

The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.  Psalm 65:9-13
