One Loop Down

I have heard many people talk about going past Hana and continuing on around the east side of the island, thus completely circling Haleakala. I finally did it.

The warnings about the bad roads are exaggerated in my opinion. Yes, it was rough in some places, and yes it was narrow in some places, but I think it was easier to drive than the road to Hana. And the views were amazing! Wow!

Do you see the road winding off into the distance? I thought it looked cool.

The road ends up in Kula (upcountry), so there was still some driving to do once I got to the regular roads again, but Kula is where the True Value Hardware with the awesome garden center is, so I was excited! Woo hoo!

Now that I’ve completely driven around Haleakala, I will definitely be driving around the other half of the island – the West Maui Mountains.

    This looked like a fun trip. BTW, when does your show on the Travel Channel begin? I wouldn’t want to miss an episode! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I agree with Carol. Let’s turn this thing into a vlog!

    Any way that leads to a hardware store is a road worth taking. ๐Ÿ™‚
