I have a visual treat for you all with this post! Today (yesterday by the time you read this) we ventured around the bottom part of Maui and traveled the Road To Hana in reverse direction. Normally one would start at the top of the island and go around that way which we did in 2008. This time we thought it would be fun to go backwards and we were so glad we did. The vibrant landscape was amazing. There was hardly anyone on the road with us and it was a visual stunner.
First things first…these are Oprah Winfrey’s horses…
We passed her beautiful ranch and home on the way. I have a picture of her home but it’s on my other camera. Will upload that later.
Here are some pics of the Road To Hana (a notoriously curvy, crazy ride around the island)…
This road takes you around the backside of Haleakala crater…
In the middle of this road,one word was painted on the asphalt. It was “Herbert”…that is my father’s name. How beautiful and strange? Angels watching over us.
We stopped to hike to this awesome waterfall and bamboo forest….
We swam at the 7 Sacred Pools but oddly enough, there aren’t 7 and they aren’t sacred….
Two more from the road trip….
Tomorrow we are back to the beach!
