Pretty eventful day in Maui. Hanging out in a #banyantree , seeing some #kingportea and walking through a lavender farm before reaching the summit of #haleakalā (over 10 000 ft above sea level) Enjoyed a refreshment in the blue grotto and finished the day with some delicious steaks!

As cold as it is back home up here. And absolutely worth it. #haleakalā
What are Hawaiian makau (fishhooks) made of? Traditionally, makau are made of bone, shell and wood, varying in size and shape depending on the type of fishing they are to be used for. Local artist and master carver Kenneth Hiraoka was commissioned by Haleakalā National Park to make a reproduction of a makau that was found in the Haleakalā wilderness during a 1962 archeological survey. The original object may have been left behind as an offering. To see more Hawaiian fishhooks on display, plan a visit to our Kīpahulu Visitor Center. For more information about the Haleakalā collection, please visit our webpage at https://www.nps.gov/hale/learn/historyculture/collections.htm. (KEM)
