Photo Album — Maui

Maui, Hawai’i’s Valley Isle, is a lush alternative to the hustle and bustle of Oahu. The eastern end of the island is dominated by Haleakala Volcano. Popular activities in Haleakala National Park include watching the sunrise from the top of the volcano and biking down the mountain. A drive to the summit reveals an otherworldly landscape.

Also at the summit visitors can find the Silversword Plant which grows exclusively on the volcano.

The old town of Lahaina is famous for its Old Lahaina Luau, best in the islands.

Iao Valley State Park features the Iao Needle, an unusual rock formation covered with vegetation.

A drive along the scenic, coastal Road to Hana makes a great day trip while on the island.

My favorite stop along the “road” is at Waianapanapa State Park which offers a black sand beach and interesting offshore rock formations.
