West Maui Mountains Trip

Kyler and I both had Spring Break and Richard was done with his Census job so it was the first time in a long time that all three of us had a week free. We decided to pretend we just landed in Maui on vacation and we were going to do all the tourist type activities. Well life got in the way - especially since the maids never came to clean our rooms nor did the landscapers come to mow the lawn but we still did do some fun things. One of those was our trip around the West Maui Mountains. It is kind of a winding, in some places a one-lane road but it is very scenic and there are lots of things to stop and see. My sister and I had taken a tour around the mountains before but Richard and Kyler had not done it yet. I thought we had to leave way early but we left so early that by the time we got to the few shops that are there they were not even open for business yet. Oh well, I guess I'll have to do it again sometime. Following are pictures of our day trip.We hiked down to some waterfalls. There was a huge banyan tree between the two falls. You held on the roots of the tree to climb down to the second set of falls.Kyler and I on the trail

On our drive around we saw some really nice houses. This guy had built a full working volcano in his backyard!

After the falls we stopped at one of the look out points. It was kind of cool the way the dirt had eroded. The rocks were really just crumbly dirt. It was pretty high up - it was a really nice view
