Lava rock walls on Kamehameiki Road, Kula Maui HI 96790

Lava rock walls on Kamehameiki Road, Kula Maui HI 96790

When you drive up or down Kamehameiki Road in Kula Maui you'll see these beautiful old rock walls along the roadside.  Volcanic lava rock is plentiful in these parts and the early inhabitants had to clear the land of loose rocks to make way for fruit trees and pastures, so they piled them up into walls around the perimeter.  There's no mortar holding them together, but the rough nature of the surfaces helps them to grip into place.

 A lot of lava rocks are porous and relatively lighter than other rocks, making it somewhat easier to build than say, granite or blue rock.  Nasturtiums like to grow wild and ramble over top, adding a splash of vibrant color.

These walls have really stood the test of time.  Some people say it's wrong to remove rocks from walls, and especially bad luck to remove them from Hawaii.  What do you think?

Many small farms still exist on Kamehameiki Rd. and it's a pleasure to see the variety of crops being grown.  980 Kamehameiki Rd. is a 4 acre property for sale with plenty of these old mossy rock walls throughout.  Originally it was part of a 16 acre homestead that was subdivided into 4 parcels.  You can tell that those early families really loved the land and took care of it, creating terraces for their gardens and orchards.
