On the day we were there, 'Iao Valley was misty and mysterious. It's a hard place to describe. Technically it is what is left of the central caldera of the West Maui volcano. As you stand there and look around, you know you are in an ancient place with a lot of history and legend. It is the valley where the people of Maui took their last stand against Kamehameha the Great in 1790 and lost. It's not very far out of Wailuku and well worth the visit. I'd like to spend some more time there in the future.
