While I proudly was able to put out the trip report in its entirety this time, I figured I'd break it up by day into different posts so you have a natural pause if you need a break. See below for each individual section.

Introduction: Flight/hotel bookings
Shabbos in Denver: Shabbos at the in-laws
Day 1: Getting to Maui, checking in to Hyatt Regency Maui
Day 2: Sunrise at Haleakala, Acid War Zone Hike, Nakalele Blowhole, Olivine Pools
Day 3: Asarah b'Teves
Day 4: Road to Hana
Day 5 - End of Trip: Checking out and a week in DEN

The book speaks of a hike from here to an even more secluded waterfall, but the only thing that slightly resembled a path through the brush was right next to this sign, so we headed back to the car.


Great TR!

Just FYI (in case others get scared off too), the hike and falls beyond that sign were really great. The hike to it is a bit more strenuous than some of the others on RTH, but well worth it IMO. It takes you farther up the stream, and you walk along this man-made ditch (I assume it's an aqueduct to redirect the water for some reason) and over a viaduct, to the pool/falls.

Here's the aqueduct you walk next to and the viaduct you have to walk across. I stripped the audio, so you won't hear anything.

Aqueduct tunnel leading to the pool/falls. I suppose you could try walking through it if you want, but we hiked over the tunnel to get to the pool.


The falls and pool at the end.

I don't know what it is but i associate each of you with each other. To me you guys are one and the same
I take that as a compliment, even though I have to disagree with @Yehuda regarding the back side of both West Maui and TRTH. I thoroughly enjoyed both.

WOW!!!! Thank you for sharing. That looks like an awesome hike and boy those falls must be entirely secluded.

Thanks for your kind words. I'm very glad you had time to read through it, despite your busy schedule. It's all about the pics I've learned.

They delivered (via delivery driver) to my home in Manhattan. I believe they do ship to HI but they charge whatever the UPS/FedEx rate is, which can be several hundred dollars.
