A hiking suggestion on Maui
My friends Sylvia and Bill went hiking on Maui and found some very inspiring views for artists. One hike with good views is Upcountry on the way to Haleakala Crater. They stopped at Halemau'u Trailhead and did a three mile "out & back" hike that had great views overlooking a valley on the west side of the mountain. They also took a short walk to the Leleiwi Overlook. If it had not been for the fog that closed in around them, they would have had another awesome, scenic look at the mountain. For people interested in hiking Haleakala, Sylvia suggests stopping at the Lower Visitor Center and asking for the hiking map that illustrates the trails and provides hiking distances. Don't forget your camera and your sketchbook.
