There were pull-offs along the way, many filled with parked cars full of tourists on various hikes, but I mainly chose to keep going. I had my own food so I didn't stop at the roadside stands. This trip was all about covering as much as I could in my short stay on Maui.
I have to face the fact that this style of travel is not what I'm after. I'm a slow traveler at heart and the pace I've been maintaining over the last few months is unsustainable. Still, I only have a weekend here so what can I do?
In this case I kept my eyes on the target(s) - Wai'anapanapa State Park, Kaihalulu (red sands) beach and the Kīpahulu area of Haleakalā National Park.
On the way into Hana I picked up a couple hitch-hiking who suggested I definitely check out the red sands and the vista from the cross high above town.
These were all great options but in the interest of time, I only managed to get through the black sands at the state park, the trail to Waimoku falls in the national park and the landscapes off Highway 31 leaving Hana.
I took these shots with the Lumix to test some compositions and exposures before shooting on film at Wai'anapanapa State Park.
