The fourth instalment in my Maui collection. Such great memories from this trip 🙂
We stopped quite a few times along the road to Hana to see if we could find some of the waterfalls described in our guidebook. This bamboo forest was along one of the first and most exciting hikes we took to find a set of secluded falls. It was muddy, humid, and slightly dangerous – so it was SUPER fun 🙂
Waterfalls. There are plenty of those in the rainforest along the road to Hana. These are just a few that we were able to see.
We were lucky enough to be able to take a 1-hour helicopter ride during our time in Maui. This shot was taken just as we came through the clouds on the way to the top of the Haleakala crater. Such a cool sight.
One day I drove myself from Kihei all the way along the west and north coastal roads to central Maui. Parts of this road were only just wide enough for a single vehicle, so it was a pretty fun drive.
Taking this shot with the fisheye exaggerates how wide this road was. In reality, it’s a single lane, 180 degree blind uphill corner. Awesomeness.
This wreck was in my guidebook, but you really have to see it to believe it. I had to hike a good 300 yards off the road and through two fences to get to this destroyed vehicle on the coastal cliffs. Your guess is as good as mine as to how it got there.
A sunset on our beach.
A view of the rugged volcanic coastline on the far southwest tip of Maui. You can’t tell, but the wind was ridiculously strong here – I was wiping salt spray off my lenses all morning.
For some reason this view reminded me of a scene straight from Africa. Felt like I could have been on a safari.
The cliffs on the northwest coast of Maui were amazing. Such fantastic views.
I think I may have enough images for one more Maui post like this. Hope you’re not getting sick of these yet!
