Maui, USA Grand Tour 2006

A view of the Kahului bay. In the distance the west part of the island can be seen.

The county of Maui consists of the Island of Maui and the three islands Kahoolawe, Molokai and Lanai. On this picture the very small island Molokini can be seen and on the left part of Kahoolawe. While Molokini is (apparently) a great place for snorkeling, and Kahoolawe is (apparently) a great place to blow stuff up, bomb it, or simply hammer it with shells. Thus, Molokini is a popular target for snorkeling people, and Kahoolawe has spent the last fifty-odd years being a popular target for the US military when testing new guns, bombs or just for target practice. I would venture to guess that every spieces known to be inhabiting the islands has at some point been shredded by the boys in gray here. Recently the island has been returned to the State of Hawaii, and the unexploded ordnance is being removed.
