visiting Haleakala National Park on Maui   The dominant geological feature of East Maui is the dormant volcano known as Haleakala, rising over 10,000 ft above sea level.  Weather at the summit is ever changing and unpredictable.  High winds are not uncommon at this elevation.  Winter or summer, you are as likely to experience rain as sun, and temperatures can be in the 60's... or below zero. Sometimes on the same day! Recently, we had snow at the summit.  Snow on Maui!  It’s truly a magical place. Trails are plentiful and always available! You can take the half mile Pa Ka'oao Trail to the top of a cinder cone for a different view or you might choose to explore a section of the long Keoneke 'ehe'e (Sliding Sands) Trail which begins near the entrance to the main parking lot.  Whichever yo...

  Haleakala Maui gets snow today Yes it's true, there really is some snow on our mountain today.  This was taken last week, before the snow, from Huelo Maui, part of Haiku.  Today I can't get a good picture because the clouds are still lingering up there in the snow zone at the top.  The road to the top was closed due to winter weather conditions... ice on the road!   Pictures from the Maui News. I hope that our little bit of snow will stick around for a few days, as it doesn't happen very often.  Maybe I'll get lucky later today and get a picture.   We are very fortunate to only get the occasional snow here on Maui, and believe me, we know how lucky we are.  Every day we are bombarded with news footage of the latest blizzards and storms that the rest of the country is experiencing.   I...

Watch out for this weed in your Maui pasture - fireweed is poisonous to livestock It's easy to identify this pest known as fireweed, by the yellow daisy-like flower with 13 petals.  The leaves are oblong and serrated.  The plant is only about 12" tall or less.  Plenty of images are available online. Senecio madagascariensis is the noxious plant that has taken hold in upcountry Maui farmland.  Originally from Australia, the seeds were brought to Maui in a carpet grass mix for applying to roadside areas.  Each plant produces thousands of seeds that are spread by wind, boots and tires.  The plants are toxic to cattle and horses, causing slow growth, illness and even death.  Sheep and goats seem to be unaffected, and have been used as a method of controlling this weed.

What a view! - building a home in Kula Maui HI - bicoastal views How about this view?  Taken from up in Jacaranda Grove subdivision in Kula Maui HI.  There are still some vacant lots for sale in the Jacaranda Grove and the adjoining Kulamanu neighborhood, starting at $235,000 for a third acre roughly.  All the lots have ocean views, but some are way better and you can see both the north shore and south shore of Maui. Kula vacant land is priced very well right now and if you can afford to buy land and build a home you will benefit from the fact that builders are more available too.  Just a few years ago this kind of project might have been out of reach.  If you're thinking about building a home in Kula Maui, let me help you find the perfect spot to start your dream.
