maui - road to hana (picture intensive)

Another item on my must see/do list for Hawaii was the road to Hana.  I am soooooo glad we took a tour bus instead of driving this ourselves.  its a 68 mile road trip that takes about 2.5 hours without stops because of all the one lane roads and bridges and all the twists and turns over 600 turns!!!! 

Since we were on the road and not in the air you can see more of the road and more information on it here:

there were several waterfalls along the way

well that was only a few pictures I took along the way but you get the picture.  by the time we got back to the ship we were gone over 9 hours.  tiring day but worth it. 

ok one more picture this is the state flag of Hawaii not to be mistaken as the British flag.
