If you are going to Maui, you have to dedicate a whole day for this trek to Hana. As the saying goes “it’s about the journey, not the destination”. Seriously could not think of a better quote for it and the journey is best shown by a slew of photos. So here is a photomontage through the twisty switch-backing road that sorta kinda brings me back. 😉
made a friend as we began our journey!! … I had no idea there were peacocks on the island!!
twin falls !
i realized that in Maui, there are two types of people. Mustang / convertable people… and jeep people. 😛
pretty much the coolest tree everrrr! … a rainbow eucalyptus tree. these are not native to Hawaii and actually imported from Papua New Guinea.
heading down the rabbithole!! … actually a volcano tube.. buttt when in Hawaii?!
really cool black sand beach when we actually made it to Hana.
sooo we attempted to get to a private beach off the road to Hana but I couldn’t get through the mud without sinking!! Maybe I wouldn’t have been so worried if I found out before the journey (instead of the day after) that there are no snakes in Hawaii. hahah.
So, in short, this journey is a must but so are snacks, a full tank of gas, and ginger ale (there are a lottt of turns and cliffs !! ).
