We bid Aloha to Oahu and traveled to Maui, landing in Kahului. 

Maui is the second largest (729 sq. mi.) of the Hawaiian Islands and has the third largest population (103,000). It is also the second youngest of the islands and was made from two volcanoes. The first, Haleakala is on the East side of the island and is the largest dormant volcano in the world. The other is Puu Kukui, which is now extinct, and on the west side of the island. The land between the two volcanoes was joined together by lava and erosion.

The soil is red on Maui because the lava that came from the volcanoes had a high level of iron in it. The iron has now oxidized and turned red. This soil is great for growing sugar cane, which is grown a lot on Maui.

We stayed in Kaanapali, on the west shore, north of Lahaini.

LAHAINA TOWN

Once the whaling capital of Maui, this historic and colorful town is today the art center of Maui.  Numerous art galleries, craft shops, and tourist emporiums line the streets along with colorful restaurants.

The famous banyan tree of Lahaina Maui is the largest Banyan in the world. It covers almost an acre of Lahaina's town square and continues to spread by sending down new roots which form additional trunks.  Planted in April, 1873, it is over 130 years old.
