So, ya... Got in there and got turned around. It's funny how the locals set up fruit stands & other roadside shops to accept your cash, but threaten you to stay away from local attractions. I thought Maui was different, but get 5 minutes from...More

My wife and I visited Helele'ike'oha Falls (aka Blue Pool) many years ago, apparently just before the controversy exploded. It was beautiful, but given the events of the last few years I have to advise people to just stay away. Not only are you trespassing,...More
