big ‘ol banyan tree

I know this isn’t a great “people” photo, but it gives you a sense of the size of this banyan tree….it was huge!  This is from our late day hike yesterday up the Pipiwai Trail at Heleakala National Park.  The stop is about 10 miles past the town of Hana and we were fighting the pending sunset, but Todd and I remembered the hike from the last time we were in Hawaii and really wanted the kids to check it out….the bamboo forest is amazing and so is this huge tree.  I don’t know if they were as impressed with the sights as we’d hoped they’d be, but aside from the blisters Greta got from hiking in flip flops, we had a great time!
