Driving the West Maui Mountains....great views but the north side road was much more stressful than driving the south road to Hana.  Lots of 1 1/2 lanes with blind hairpin curves along the cliffs.  Held our breath a couple of times with oncoming traffic but still worth the adventure.  Recommend driving from Lahina so that you are hugging the hillside as opposed to driving the cliff side!

Kula, Upcountry, Maui, Hawaii.   Kula is a quaint, rustic area on the slopes of Haleakalā. Located in the central part of the island, Kula is also at the center of its culinary resurgence, with much of the exotic produce served at Maui’s best restaurants grown right here in the rich, volcanic soil.

Black sand beach off the road to Hana, Maui.  We travelled this road in 1988, and it was the most awesome thing in the world!!!
