Seven Sacred Pools - tropical paradise in Maui, Hawaii

In the southeast Maui, just a few miles south of Hana, are the beautiful "Seven Sacred Pools" (Their official native title is "Oheo Gulch", but it doesn't sound as romantic or inviting). This is part of the Haleakala National Park. The source of these pools and waterfalls is the Pipiwai Stream, which flows into the Pacific Ocean just a few hundred feet behind me. This popular swimming hole is located in a tropical paradise --as close to "Eden" or "Shangri-La" as you can get in Hawaii or any where else in the world! See the rest of this 5-photo series below.
