Rock Stacking on Maui

We first came across this spot while driving to Honukua bay to snorkel with the giant Honu or sea turtles. There were literally hundreds of these rock stacks looking over the Pacific ocean. We convinced ourselves that it must be some sort of old Hawaiian religious ritual. We also noticed them on Haleakala and other places on the island. I did some research and they have nothing to do with Hawaii. Apparently people do this all over the world and since then I have noticed them in other places at well. This just proves that all people are creative and the human mind provides endless ways for us to exhibit our creativity. You can see more images from Maui at my commercial gallery by clicking here.

Maui Rock Stacking

On our last trip to Maui we noticed different areas where rocks were stacked sometimes four or five feet high. I thought there might be some ancient Hawaiian religious significance to these balancing acts. Later I learned, this happens all over the world and is a hobby for some. Some actually think of this as a profession and earn a living balancing rocks. So much for religion. In any case , they are fun to see and create interesting vistas. This one was taken in West Maui overlooking the Pacific. Buy prints of my Hawaii images by clicking here.
