The Road to Hana

Marc and I made our first trip to Hana with Ryno and Jen. Hana is as far away from Lahaina as you can get and still be on Maui. It is the wet side of the island and as a result around every corner on the narrow twisting road is an amazing waterfall. We drove the rental convertible but we kept having to stop and put the lid up due the misting rain. The highlights included Blue Pool, Venus Pool, a beautiful hike through a bamboo forest and Alelele Falls. We learned that trees don't have annual growth rings since we don't have seasons here in Maui and we dug up a keiki bamboo to grow on our lanai. The waterfalls were massive and gushing. We were not able to soak in the Seven Sacred Pools (Their are not seven nor are they sacred; the owner of the Hotel Hana Maui just needed an attraction for makreting purposes. It worked.) because the falls were raging and we might have been washed out to sea.

Here are some great photos for you.

I just got back from maui and loved it. I was looking through your pictures and noticed the first couple of pictures lookes like the waterfall we went to. I want to know what the name of the falls is. We had to hike up alot of rock. If this is the same one could you email me the name. Thanks
