Located at the very end of Makena Alanui Road in South Maui, this lava strewn, alien looking landscape is the result of the last volcanic eruption here. Scientists estimate that in 1790 Haleakala erupted to form the jagged lava rock coastline.
It’s an amazing sight to see – it looks like a giant field that has just been tilled and it goes for miles and miles. All photos are mine.
