Today marked day 2 of our time in Maui. It also marked my 34th birthday. A year ago, we were holding our babies in Ethiopia. Today we took the road to Hana. This is about a two hour drive over 54 miles IF you don’t stop. It took Wes and I just over 4 hours. There are approximately 600 turns on this road and 54 bridges. Yes, it is quite the windy road, but with some magnificent views. But to be honest, our favorite part came after we got out of the car at the 7 sacred pools. We took a 4 mile hike to the Waimoku Falls, which fall 400-feet down a sheer lava rock wall. The pictures don’t even do it justice, but it is absolutely beautiful, and quite breath-taking. And let me just say that those Zumba classes have paid off! The hike was mostly all uphill, but it didn’t seem too bad. Hmmm…I must be getting in shape.
So needless to say, once again we got to see more of Maui’s beauty. Can’t wait to see what the days to come have in store for us!
