We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknown river to explore.
– John Wesley Powell

Although we only had a few hours to visit this great spectacle, it was still worthwhile. I had not been there for many years, and the crowds had become horrendous, the downside of the experience.

The combination of mountains and high rainfall found on the Road to Hana in eastern Maui have combined to provide a large number of waterfalls which can be viewed just short distances from your car.

The Lower Puohokamoa Falls can be seen from a lookout accessed by a trail off of a pulloff just past Milepost #11. It is a distant view, but a gorgeous one with red-flowering African Tulip Trees mixed into the forest around it.

Hanawi Falls, Maui

One of my favorites is the Hanawi Falls, with multiple flows and large ferns overhanging it. It is right beside the road just past Milepost #24.
