Photos of Hawaii from Chhiring Sherpa

I always enjoy seeing photos from others taken during their vacations.

Earlier last month, my outdoor grounds crew foreman Chhiring Sherpa and his son, Mingmar, returned from a brief trip to Hawaii. Once described by Mark Twain as "the loveliest fleet of islands that lies anchored in any ocean," the Hawaiian Islands form an archipelago in the North Pacific Ocean encompassing a land area of 6400 square miles. Hawaii consists of 137 volcanic islands. The eight main islands are Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Maui, and Hawaiʻi or the Big Island. On this eight-day trip, Chhiring and Mingmar visited Maui and O'ahu.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
