Don’t Fence Me In

That’s the title of an old western song that was a favorite of my dad’s and these barbed wire fences are fun to photograph when I find them. This location is one that I visited two years ago.  Hookipa Beach is a popular surfing area with an overlook to watch the surfers. On the back side of the overlook is a steep  trail to the ocean which is bordered by this western fence.

Public and Private

Most people stop to watch the surfers from Maui’s Hookipa Beach Lookout which is fun to do. If, however, you walk around the corner  to the right  there a trail down to lava rocks and the crashing sea.  What I found interesting was this old barbed wire fence that separates the public portion and the adjacent private property.
