[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the famous Iao Needle at Wailuku on the island of Maui. There is an excellent description of the Iao Valley and its history at:


"The lovely, deep valley of 'Iao features the 'Iao Needle, a natural rock pinnacle presiding over the 'Iao stream and surrounded by the walls of the Pu'u Kukui Crater. Once used as a natural altar, the 2,250-foot stone pillar covered in green, is a basaltic core that has survived eons of swirling water."
