We left early on our drive to Hana and before the day had hardly begun this wonderful rainbow appeared. A good omen.
You can find a lot of information about this famous drive to the southeast end of Maui. Until you do it yourself you really don’t understand. It’s long, narrow, and winding. Along the way it’s green with cane, banyan trees, fern, water falls, and glimpses of the ocean far below. Eleven miles after Hana is the small Palapala church and the burial site of Charles Lindbergh. It’s a very modest site overlooking the pristine coastline. As a pilot it is one of the places I had to see. I know, not what one typically does when visiting Maui.
