Inside Haleakala Crater - panoramic snapshots of a surreal landscape - Maui Hawaii Hiking down Sliding Sands Trail. I just spent 24 hours inside one of the quietest places on earth... Haleakala Crater at Haleakala National Park.  Staying at the Kapalaoa cabin was a real treat.  You'll have to be content with iPhone pics because I was trimming away as much weight as possible for the grueling hike.  I just took the iPhone and the flip camera.  Got a lot of good video footage! Hiking down Sliding Sands Trail. The camera app I used for these photos is called Photosynth - I think it was even free.  Very easy to use by just aiming and clicking, and the app stitches a picture together.  Of course you need to crop it later for a neat look. The floor of the crater, near Kapalaoa Cabin. I can't b...

Going camping on Maui - the wilderness cabins in Haleakala crater Maui is not really geared to the camping and backpacking crowd, like some other parts of the world, but there are a few places where you're welcome to camp.  One of those places is inside the crater up at Haleakala National Park.  That's the very top of the mountain over here!  The park has 3 wilderness cabins which can be reserved in advance: Holua; Paliku; and Kapalaoa.  Each one has it's own unique location and they are well separated, and can only be reached by footpath. The cabins come equipped with the very basics, such as a wood stove, bunk beds with thin mattresses, water, outdoor toilets, a table and benches.  They can sleep 12 people, and it's really quite cozy and fun.  2 of the cabins have camping areas outsi...

Kula Maui HI bank owned homes and market snapshot I showed this Kula Maui home to a buyer client the other day.  Actually it's 2 homes, a main house and a detached cottage on a large lot of over half an acre.  It's a bank owned property - an REO as they are called.  Priced at $527,000 it seems like a pretty good price for Kula, which is usually an expensive place to buy a home on Maui.  After seeing inside the homes I would have to think that perhaps the price is too high, and that would explain why it's still on the market. 676 Lower Kimo Drive, Kula Maui HI 96790 Neither home was very big, with the total interior space of both house and cottage being 1,200 sf.  They both need a fair amount of work to make them nice again.  The yard was pretty rough and had been allowed to go wild, whi...
