Photos 2006

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.

The last time I hiked Kilauea Iki, I remember it being a hot and brightly sunny day. Not today. It could have been the Plains of Mordor, for all the fog.
