Photography – Maui and Oahu

I have a ton of pictures stored up from hikes and trips I’ve taken over the years. I currently keep them on Facebook, but I don’t like having them up there. This will be the new home for whatever photos I deem worthy of sharing.

In this collection, I’m putting up some of the pictures I took from a trip to Maui and Oahu in August/September of 2011. I visited the North Shore of Oahu, including Kahana Bay, Waimea Bay, and Sunset Beach. On Maui, I visited Haleakala, the northwest side of the island (termed “rounding the Head”), and the towns of Kahana and Lahaina. Click on any photograph to embiggen.
