   Maui Vacation...

Images from our vacation to Maui, Hawaii... (Also see new images from Kauai)

Life is good at the Four Seasons resort on Wailea Beach. The resort was immaculate, the grounds were impeccable and the staff was amazingly professional. Highly recommended.
Mt. Haleakala, a10,000 foot high volcano, lies at the center of the island, and is responsible for creating the island over a period of millions of years. The landscape at the crater with its red rock almost seems alien. After visiting the volcano, we enjoyed lunch at the famed beach side restaurant Mama's Fish House.
We enjoyed a day of snorkeling at the Molokini Crater, a crescent shaped sunken crater that is now a marine preserve and a popular location for diving and snorkeling.
One of the most popular things for visitors to Maui to do is to drive the famous Road to Hana. The road encircles the eastern part of the island is comprised of a narrow never straight highway with many one lane bridges. There are numerous excursions and hikes to waterfalls through lush rain forests. We even found the famous Blue Pool falls which were hard to locate and required navigating some ominous areas. And of course we visited the Seven Sacred Pools. After reaching Hana, we continued all the way around on some very sketchy highway unlike most who turn around and go the way they came. From this vantage point we were able to seem some spectacular views of Haleakala.
Not too far past Kapalua lies the Nakalele Blowhole where the the ocean has undercut the shoreline and waves blast water up through a large hole in the lava shelf. Water blasts can reach as high as 70 feet. Earlier we dove the waters off of Wailea Beach where we saw several large sea turtles.
Here we visited Ka'anapali Beach and later took in a Lu'au in the old town of Lahaina. The next day taking in some surfing at Kihei, though the waves were quite small that day.
