Maui - Road to Hana (picture Intensive)

By Stampmouse
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:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hana_Highway and here has a video: http://roadtohana.com/
there were several waterfalls along the wayhawaii - maui road to hana-44
several beaches along the way as well
