End of the Path Less Taken - Fine Art Weekly Series

End of the Path Less Taken...

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

             -"The Road Not Taken," by Robert Frost

We chose the path less taken. And it brought us to this breathtaking waterfall far fewer see.

It was steep and muddied. Single track and tucked high above a lesser waterfall. It climbed a cliff face in ankle deep mud. Passed through a tunnel of native vegetation. Crossed a 120 year old viaduct. It was steep, slippery, treacherous, even hard to follow, but oh was it worth it! 

Climbing in cheap sandals with our camera gear and tripod added a degree of difficulty to the trek, making the reward even sweeter.

If you find yourself on the east side of Maui, take the time and effort to find it. It will make all the difference.
