Great to be home, and wonderful to wake up to a beautiful #SanDiego sunrise. (Now for some coffee & unpacking.)

Not a bad view on my way back to San Diego.

Nothing but respect for tenacity of life. (Ferns growing on solid rock/ former lava flow)

Hard to tell because the camera phone doesn’t do it justice, but this is Kilauea Caldera glowing in the night. #awesomeEarth

Morning walk through the rainforest on the big island of Hawaii. Though one can try, no camera can truly capture the spectacular #environment in one frame. The diversity of life is too deep, the colors are too rich and the fragrance is lost in images alone. #explore #outside

Wrapping up our day of filming at the #conservation site & saw some wild nēnē (Hawaiian goose), the official bird of the state of Hawaii. They too were once critically endangered, with only 30 left in the1950’s. But thanks to conservation they are now back in the wild & listed as vulnerable instead of critical endangered.

Raising critically endangered ‘alala for eventual release to the wild requires not letting them imprint on humans. No talking, no visual (full-body black gowns worn) and puppets used for feedings.

On the short hike to Rainbow Falls I came across a giant.
