The Shire

We cycled upcountry yesterday into what we have dubbed "the Shire." 35 miles, 3300 vertical feet, featuring a variety of landscapes. The first part of the ride was a steady uphill climb for about seven miles or so. When the road enters the Shire - so named because of the green fields, trees and lava rock walls - it starts down again, but becomes curvy and up and down. It made for a fun descent, but climbing back up provided an excellent workout for our legs.

Historic St. John Episcopal Church. 

Labyrinth in the parking lot of the church. What is it with Episcopalians and labyrinths, so that even this tiny church on a hill in Maui has one?

There were stunning vistas toward the ocean.
