This is not the first post of these trees. But this photo offers a slightly different view and treatment. “Do they really look like that?” you ask. Well, I studied and taught philosophy just long enough to be confused by that question. So I’m not answering. . . .
The Hana Highway on the east coast of Maui covers 50 miles of some of the beautiful scenery I have seen. There is an amazing variety of vegetation but the eucalyptus trees that grow here caught my attention. They are so different from anything South Dakotans like me are used to seeing – especially their colorful, camouflage “bark.”
My family waited while I got out of the car and photographed a small grove of these stately trees. From all of the photos I took, this is the one that seemed to best represent the nature of this tree.
