The volcanic crater.
The road slanted up, up, up from the near beach hotel. As we climbed, the vegetation changed. We were changing climate zones.
The top, or in this case, the crater’s rim, was barren and beautiful and the same time. Rocks. A few hardy, low plants.
I found a friendly rock for a seat and contemplated the power and majesty of creation.
Have you found a “thinking spot” on your travels?
Location of this view is Maui in the Hawaiian Islands.
