Spectacular waves

An interesting and spectacular drive around the northern shore of Maui
on the road to Kahakuloa.

The road hugs the shore and mountainsides

Incredible views

Woke at 0300 hours, drove 2 hours in dark up a very curvy road from sea level to
9,740 feet at the visitor center at the dormant volcano to view sunrise.

Sunrise occurred while the clouds were still at the mountain top.

The crater at Haleakala National Park - the highest point on Maui at about
10,000 foot elevation - visitor center at 9,700 feet at sunrise.
Brief clearing of cloud cover shows spectacular view.

Above the clouds its chilly, even in Maui (39 degrees at sunrise)

The road to Hana, about 50 miles of switchback curves, narrow roads, one lane bridges
and rain forest conditions on the east side of Maui.

Bamboo jungle on Hana Highway.

Pineapple growing

One of many water falls along the Hana highway.

Disturbing evidence of a mud slide, overlapping the Hana Highway.
Rainfall on the Hana highway averages 300 inches annually,
while rainfall on the western shore near Lahaina averages 20 inches!
