It's breathtakingly spectacular. I lived the other ten and a half months for that short hiking season, with one or two two-week trips to places I could hike at other times of the year.I only quit when I began to get too skittish on the trails, most of which have one or two very sketchy spots where a slip could be serious. When I made the decision that I no longer was steady or strong enough to hike safely, I moved here.Maui is not as spectacularly beautiful as British Columbia, but I get to paddle year-'round. No more waiting ten and a half months for hiking season to arrive. And at sea level there's no snow.

Something to do with humidity (or lack thereof), and also that while it gets cold here, it doesn't get as cold as it gets in really cold places. That and the fact that it's usually quite hot in the summer, though not as hot as it gets in really hot places, means that there's a big contrast between summer and winter. It gets hotter in summer than it gets in really cold places, and it gets colder in winter than it does in really hot places.
