Road to Hana

2 leave only footprints 2

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. 😉

2 peacock hana

made a friend as we began our journey!! … I had no idea there were peacocks on the island!!

13 volcano tunnel

14 volcano tunnel 2

25 black beach

really cool black sand beach when we actually made it to Hana.

26 mud 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 !! ).
