Road to Hana

We just returned from a relaxing trip in beautiful Maui. We spent a few days in Maalaea with Josh's family, and then drove the ever-winding, simply stunning road to Hana. Robert Louis Stevenson coined a term to describe the lush landscapes found in Hawaii - viridescent. It seems like a good word for Maui's landscape. My photos never seem to do it justice, but here are a few from our trip to Hana.

Once we arrived in Hana, we stayed at the Travaasa Hana for three nights. It was an incredible trip that included hikes through bamboo forests to see stunning waterfalls, visiting a botanical garden and an underground cave formed by lava (known as a lava tube), capped off with a bit of R&R at the hotel pool and the local beach. Not to mention the incredible food - I ate as much mahi mahi as I could get my hands on. But Hana really deserves its own future post, so stay tuned.
