    A few vacation shots from Maui

    Nakele Point on the Northwest side of the island. Excellent hiking and a blowhole that sprays ocean water up to 70 ft in the air during the winter months. A great place to see just how vicious the ocean can be, crashing against the cliffs.

    Haleakala Crater. The dormant island volcano that formed Maui. Viewing the sunrise is a highlight, although I've never done it because waking up at our place in Ka'anapali at 3 am to drive up never appealed to me.

    The observatory at Haleakala's 10,000 ft. summit. One of the telescopes is used by the military to track space junk.

    Sundown in Lahaina, an old whalers village turned into a cultural center and shopping/eating area.

    The banyan tree in Lahania that takes up about two acres. It looks like a lot of separate trees, but in reality it's just one. Coincidentally, Jerry Garcia spent lots of time in this square painting the tree.

    Whale watching. Highly recommended to everyone. It's really more like "whale waiting" because once you see the tail, they're diving for at least 7 minutes or so.

    And a short stop at Planet Hollywood Hotel in Las Vegas to break up the plane flights. Maui was much more fun.

    I did a hawaii trip with the family years ago, the pics bring back memories. I just have to say that I would not recommend whale watching, it was like torture.

    My mom's side all live in Hawaii and I go there every few years. Maui is my favorite island. Now that I have a good camera I can't wait to go back. The seven sacred pools is one of my favorite spots to go and swim every time I am there! I miss that place so much, haven't been there the whole time I have been here in Texas...

    I guess it's a matter of opinion. I've never seen anything like it. What time of year were you there?

    Never been, but aside from touring Europe, going to Hawaii is my most desired vacation. Seeing pictures of it just take my breath away. I plan to get married there.
