STS026-037-078 Maui, Hawaii, U.S.A. October 1988
The major landforms of Maui are featured in this photograph—the well-entrenched radial drainage pattern of Puukukui Volcano [5788 feet (1764 meters)] at the west-northwest end of the island to Red Hill and Haleakala Crater [10 023 feet (3055 meters)] at the south end. Throughout the island, shield volcanoes dominate the landscape. The large cultivated field patterns of the intermontane valley are discernible. Kahoolawe is the small island just off the southwest coast of Maui.
