Aloha Friday Photo: Iao Valley State Park

Mahalo to Joseph Fishwick for sharing this nice Iao Valley State Park photo with us for Aloha Friday Photos.

Joseph’s photo shows the star of Iao Valley — the Iao Needle. This needle of a peak stands at 2,250 feet above sea level within the history-filled Iao Valley State Park. It’s definitely a visit to include into your Maui vacation itinerary.

Happy Aloha Friday!

  1. Hello Sheila Beal,
    I get your weekly emails and pay particular attention to anything about my favourite Hawai’i island, Maui.
    I really liked this photo from Joseph. We haven’t been to the Iao since they started charging for parking. I have often wondered what is the correct pronunciation of Iao? Can you please tell me
    The weekly emails are a great way to keep the memories alive until our next visit. Thank you

      Hi Peter – good question. It’s a strong “e” sound followed by “ow” — “e ow”

      Thanks for reading!
