Today we took a little road trip upcountry to Hana. Hana is a small town in the middle of the rainforest on the southeast coast of Maui. You get there on a one lane twisty road said to have more than 600 turns. This is a trip you take without the destination in mind...it is the journey there. We found several gorgeous waterfalls, beautiful flowers, amazing trees, beautiful coastline, and lots of "David be careful."

The road PAST Hana
So as we reached Hana we decided to drive past Hana and take a different road home. We got nervous and turned back around. The road was unpaved and very much "off the beaten path.". Then we asked a park ranger after David really wanted to take this route , and she said it is passable by any car.....so we turned around to try again! After a nervous moment or two we were so glad we took the road less traveled. It was completely different than the road into Hana...very mountainous with beautiful valleys. Let's just say the cows here have no idea of the view they have.
This is a view of Haleakala. No matter how many photos I took, they just didn't do it justice.
We were exhausted after a day of driving. We made it back in time for Ethan to stretch his legs for a long run on the beach and an early bedtime:).
