Photo By Tony Aceves

  • Title: Remnants
  • State/Province/Region: Hawaii
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Iao Valley
  • Nearest Town: Wailuku
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: This is the Iao Needle landmark on West Maui, it’s deep in the Iao valley and up a short trail. The scene had a dark and looming feel to it due to the thick cloud coverage, but a little bit of sunlight was slipping through some of the holes in the clouds and illuminating the tip of the mountains. “The Iao Needle (Kūkaemoku) is a famous landmark in the state park, a vegetation-covered lava remnant rising 1,200 feet (370 m) from the valley floor or 2,250 feet (690 m) when measured from sea level. The “needle” itself is an illusion, and is in reality a sharp ridge that gives the appearance of being a spire when viewed end-on. The needle is an extension of and surrounded by the cliffs of the West Maui Mountains, an extinct volcano." - Wikipedia
