Scenes from the Road to Hana

Me, the Rule Breaker
May 2008

My iTunes: On the Road Again by Willie Nelson

Another thing MUST on our list was the road to Hana. You fill up with gas and pack a lunch and before you know it you are on 54 miles of winding road that takes you across Maui. 54 miles in 4 hours. You weave along the two lane narrow roads to see gorgeous, black sand beaches and dense bamboo forests. There are several stops you can make where you can stretch your legs and hike to a waterfall or see some of the most beautiful plant life in the world. For Mother's Day I got some Keene's from my better half and the kiddos and I wore them out that day for sure!

Oh, and the song up top? That was playing over and over on the Road to Hana CD we got to go along with out drive by mile marker. I can honestly say I don't ever want to hear that song again! EVER. Right Tracey?

I will share some more scenes from the road to Hana tomorrow! Enjoy!

sounds like an amazing hike! I am loving the pineapple shot.

We are beach bound tomorrow....so excited!

Mark said...

That last pic is very cool, and only because you shot it so tight.

You're continuing a great wrap-up of your trip.

Wonderful images Anna!

I don't think after tasting pineapple so fresh in Hawaii that it ever tastes the same again after that!

Love Mauai and love Hana even more. Next time you go, you've got to stay overnight in Hana. Early in the morning just after sunrise it rains and a beautiful golden glow fills the sky -- and your room if you have the shades open. When I first saw it I thought my husband had turned on the light as I woke up. Saw my first ever wild mongoose there.

It's not enough to just break the rules. You've got to photograph yourself to prove you broke them! The 'wall police" are going to get you!

Love these shots. That one of the idol carving reminds me of the Brady Bunch. MMMM...fresh pineapple. Can't wait to see more!

Hey Anna,

Those shots are absolutely awesome. I particularly like "Local Art," but had a good chuckle at you breakin' the rules. :)

Can't wait to see more!

Is that you standing on the wall I see?? Rule breaker!(wink) looks like you had a blast.

Anna said...

Love the pics! It was a nice surprise to see you in the first one :-) I showed it to my friends at school and told them how that's my awesome friend who's a photographer and was just in Maui!

You certainly show your independence in that first shot...what a beautiful place and I love the textures in the last shot.

Anna: Very cool pictures. Glad your back, I didn't know you were a rule breaker, I just thought you used those angles for your camera. LOL

Gina said...

great photos Anna, sounds like an ideal place to visit..that pineapple sounds superb! :O)

Sarch said...

Fantastic! It sounds like it would make a great dual sport motorcycle ride!

Ooohh! Welcome home! I've really missed your blog and I CAN'T WAIT to see images from the wedding! HOW DID IT GO?! Still giggling about the picture of you with the sign!

You rebel! Welcome home. Isn't the road to Hana gorgeous? I loved all the fresh flowers for sale on the side of the road on the honor system. And the bananas. We stopped to buy some. As I picked up a bunch a huge spider was inside waiting to greet me. Fun memories. :) Welcome home again and can't wait to hear and see more from the trip and wedding.
