Trip Upcountry

Paia, Maui

February 19, 2022

We drove up towards the road that climbs Haleakala but we didn’t take it.  Instead we kept to the right to Kula and beyond.  If we stayed on the road it would take us around the island, through Hana and back to Paia.  We stopped at the Maui Winery and the Ulupalakua Country Store.

These two guys wouldn’t say a word:

She was handing out masks:

Barnyard humor:

Okay, they’re all statues:

Across the street to the winery:

Tree stump carvings:

There are a few trees on the property that are real specimens:

Sculpture, not real:

More information about the Ulupalakua Ranch Store:

There are thousands of feet of rock wall lining the road.  They all appear to be dry set.  That’s a lot of work:

Entrance to the Maui Ponderosa:

Downtown Kula:

A great little spot made even more famous by you know who (hint: she had a TV show and her own book club):

What a great day.
