Maui II

Background

I took this on the stretch of highway that continues on past Hana and found this to be one of the most underrated parts of the island. The road was not nearly as busy as the road to Hana and the vast fields are mostly untouched other than some small ranches.

    I can’t really tell, but is that a cattle guard on the near side of the bridge road?here is so much climate variety. Amazing. Is everyone in Hawaii car dependent, as most of us are on the mainland?

    Beautiful! I wonder how many people go on past Hana. Haven’t been to Maui in a long time….I think we’re going to have to pay a visit soon!

    I’ve been on that road! It is so untouched and beautiful. Mauai has such a diverse landscape, one of my favorite places!

    I remember doing this road when we visited Maui in 1997. I thought that the road had been destroyed by some natural event so I am glad to see that it is still there as I do remember the scenery to be absolutely spectacular. Great pictures as always.

    What a great stretch of highway and road. There’s something great about viewing the terrain in your photograph. I can feel the barren earth on my feet and smell the ocean air, perhaps it not far away.

    That doesn’t look like Canada! Always great photos… when hiking in Canada or elsewhere.

    Nice photo. We used to take that road with a rental Jeep 20 years ago when it was mostly dirt. Nice to see it’s still in such lovely countryside. I agree, much underrated – but that makes it a great place to get away from the resort-y parts of Maui!
