In the November/December 2009 issue of HAWAII Magazine, we take you, in words and pictures, to Makawao (pronounced Mah-kah-Wow!). It's Maui's historic cowboy town, filled with both horses and homegrown boutiques.
As always, we had more photos from HAWAII Magazine photographer David Croxford than we could publish, so we’ve put together a slideshow tour of this fascinating, but not often seen part of Maui, exclusively for HawaiiMagazine.com.
Take a look, both here and in the HAWAII Magazine print edition's feature Hidden Hawaii: Stand Up for Makawao: You'll meet some real paniolos—as we call our cowboys in Hawaii—plus some other fascinating folks, from glass blowers to asparagus farmers to sausage makers to bakers.
