Pi’iliani Highway at Kanaio by Pono Images

Last summer, I traveled back to Maui. Many have heard of the infamous “Road to Hana” – for that drive, you go through Kahului, Paia, and then on to Hana. But there is another road. The road that goes past Hana, continues past the Pools of Oheo, Kaupo, past Kanaio and the Maui Winery in Ulupalakua, and into Kula.

This area historicaly held a large Hawai’ian population, but now is pretty desolate. Most years, by summer, this area is extremely dry, but this past year, thanks to a bit more rain, the scrub in this area was very green. Out of view in this image is a recently installed stand of windmils, used to generate power for Maui. Trade winds get funneled along this coastline between Maui and the Big Island of Hawai’i, which on a clear day can be seen across the channel.
