Wild West Maui

I know. I said I would update this Thursday and it's Monday now... but hey, I'm pretty bored right now so I thought I would go ahead and update it.

We decided to head out pretty early in the morning, around 9 AM. We went to our favorite resteraunt (McDonalds) twice that morning. No, we aren't pigs. We got drinks first and realized we forgot lunch so decided to run in and grab some McChickens. For the record, McDonalds isn't our favorite resteraunt, just the most visited. Anyway...

Most people want to know what's in West Maui. We all know of Lahaina and even Honolua Bay, but few people go past that area. Simply put, you can find anything from high pali's (sea cliffs) to blowholes. The trail to get to the blowhole is really neat. It's being eaten alive by acid. Of course, the trail is steep and not for the un-sure footed. (I hope that's a word) It's definitely worth the hike down there. If you want to be boring and lazy, there is another trail down there a little more than half the way of the other.

Next we visit the Olivine Pools. We discovered this in a book called Maui Revealed. Maui Revealed says and proves that there is much of Hawaii still left to be discovered if you want to explore a little. Me and my dad are hikers, so we really liked this. (Mom isn't a hiker but she tagged alone too) The pools are mostly protected from the ocean. They have a lot of algae on them which always freaks me out. I hate the slimy feel and not knowing what I'm stepping on. There is one very deep, too, but I didn't explore that one. Yet again, we are waiting for some guinea pigs to help us explore some of these places.

I wish we could have explored Lahaina a little more than we have! We haven't really explored it since we've been here. Somebody come visit so we can. ;)
