My first hike home after our trip to Hawaii and I found an owl dead on the frozen creek.
It appears that it hit the power lines overhead & fell to the creek below.
Its a great horned owl.
What a beautiful creature. I love how the patterns of its feathers mimic the tree bark.
And look at those talons.
Due to federal regulations, people cannot possess raptors or any part of them,
so I had to leave him to decompose in the woods.

On Maui, there is a well known road that snakes through the rainforest behind the
Haleakala Crater. It is 52 miles to the small town of Hana with over 600 turns & 59 bridges.
There are lots of waterfalls from the rain flowing down the mountainside.
There are lovely black sand beaches
Its a fun trip!
