Maui's diverse landscapes are the result of a unique combination of geology, topography, and climate.
Each volcanic cone in the chain of the Hawaiian Islands is built of dark, iron-poor rocks, which poured out
of thousands of vents as highly fluid lava over a period of millions of years.

The climate of the Hawaiian Islands is characterized by a two-season year, mild and uniform temperatures
everywhere (except at high elevations), marked geographic differences in rainfall, high relative humidity,
extensive cloud formations (except on the driest coasts and at high elevations), and dominant trade-wind
flow ( especially at elevations below a few thousand feet ).
