Fiery Furnace

Fiery Furnace

In what amounts to another illustration of the fact that I should never be allowed to name a national landmark or monument, I thought “Fiery Furnace” looked more like “Box of Melted Crayons”. All red crayons of course, but still.

One thing I loved about the Fiery Furnace was the spectacular view into the Salt Valley beyond. Since it had rained the night before, the Salt Valley Wash was flowing and the landscape was alive with color. I found the view from Fiery Furnace to be the grandest in the park. Of course, we had yet to hike to Delicate Arch.

Phil and I have visited Stowe many times but I was surprised to realize that I’ve never devoted a post to it. It’s a stunning place, a vast landscape garden lovingly restored and maintained by the National Trust.

After several days of gloomy weather in Kapalua, we’re ready for some sunshine. We decide to visit Lahaina. We catch the shuttle bus from our hotel and travel southward along Honoapiilani Highway for a dozen miles or so.
