I'm a sucker for deserts. Having never been to one, I think I lucked out here. All the desolation of a desert minus the heat. Taken at about 9,300 feet, this photo isn't photoshopped - the rocks were actually Mars-red. The area was littered with painfully scenic craters and overlooks into the island of Maui. At this altitude, nothing grows. When you sprint back and forth (trying to beat the 10 second time on the camera), you realize why: after one or two quick sprints, you suddenly find yourself fatigued and trying to catch your breath.
