Maui, Hawaii, USA: Take me to Lahaina

Hi everyone! Here are the rest of the pictures from my trip to Maui! I tried to break these posts up by area so this post mostly consists of photos in Lahaina! I’m also throwing in our underwater photos from my parents go-pro. We did some snuba while we were on a snorkeling tour and I LOVED it! Snuba is a hybrid of scuba diving and snorkelling so you end up with all the benefits of scuba diving without having to go through all the training. I always thought it would be super cool to scuba dive and this only solidified my dream to get a scuba certification! I know, I know, why in the world would you get a certification for a water activity in ARIZONA?! Well, it is only a dream and although I think it would be the sickest thing ever, I don’t think it will happen anytime soon. Scuba diving was something I always thought was interesting and I’m really glad to know that I’ve had an experience that confirms all my suspicions! Anyways, this post isn’t about snuba (well not entirely) it’s about pictures! Hope you enjoy.

These were from when we were in Hana and the photos above was actually the beach right behind the place we stayed at! It was absolutely beautiful! The photos below are from the Pipiwai trail to the Waimoku falls and the Seven Sacred Pools. Again absolutely stunning, from the bamboo forest to the hidden trail that takes you right up to the waterfall and the giant banyan tree! This was probably my favorite hike I’ve ever done!Pipiwai trailPipiwai trail BambooPipiwai trail waterfallPipiwai trail Banyan treePipiwai trail BridgePipiwai trail Bridge with mom

One thing I had to do while on Maui was to watch the sunrise over Haleakala Crater. Now, we all know Hawaii is a chain of volcanos so it is pretty obvious that’s how this crater was formed, but what is really cool about is that is is 10,000 ft in elevation. So, driving up this mountain you go from nice warm tropical weather to 50 degrees with 30 mile per hour winds. I was freezing, couldn’t feel my fingers or my butt, and was a little dizzy from the altitude change but is was so worth it. Not only was the sunrise magically beautiful we also met some interesting people. This will be a morning I’ll never forget.
