Fruitboy was kind enough to introduce Leaf and I to Jeff, the creator and caretaker of the Khagya Dhechen Hermitage, during a brief visit there up a steep 4-wheel-drive road.
It was great to see fabulous Fruitboy, Keleb, and Crude (well-behaved puppy!) here on Maui, along with lovely Leaf, Deseret, John, Marcos, and Diana (the last two of whom we picked up hitching).
Haleakala is awesome… we braved freezing 50mph winds at the summit, so not much hiking!
