Poelua Maui

Green Valley of Poelua

With lush green valleys and red cliff sides the Poelua area of Maui could easily be mistaken for its nearby, rainier neighbor island of Kaua’i. Northwest Maui is quite dense with life while being void of people, as much of it is within the West Maui Forest Reserve, which receives plenty of rain annually and has restricted access.

Although there are a few open paths, most people get to scenes like this by helicopter or special permission.

From the Photographer:

Poelua: Maui’s Northwest side has some amazing untouched terrain that seems to glow after a good rain. Shot with Canon 5D MK II with 17-40L glass.
