One of the most glorious hikes in Kipahulu (Hana side of Maui) is the up through the valley on Pipiwai Trail, to spectacular Waimoku Falls. The bamboo forest is absolutely photogenic and you feel like all of your creative energy juices are flowing because everywhere you look there is more beauty to capture. There is sort of a Disney-esk feeling about the twisted forest that at times I longed for my canvas and paints. Camping was just the perfect venue which enabled us to sleep with nature and absorb the spectacular beauty, including the star-filled sky. We did need to get a permit and Hana Camp Gear set up our tent at the Haleakala park camp site - so when we got back all we had to do was watch the sunset. I only wish we had planned a couple of nights longer because there is so much to see.
