My mom, Jane Yanabu, is a teacher at Keonepoko Elementary School in Pahoa. I visited her classroom in June.
On that same trip, I took Tim Holland on a foggy tour of Kilauea Iki, including some of the ohia trees in the crater.
Meanwhile, back in Albuquerque, I photographed the bumper crop of snap beans in the back yard, as well as the last of the season marigolds and okras.
In October, I went on a tour of Okinawa with my parents and grandparents. I had never been to Japan before, and found it full of visual interest.
