The Three Bears

As the morning light peaked over the horizon, I was well on my way maneuvering through the twist and turns of the 60 mile stretch of the Hana Highway. I was heading to the remote town of Hana, on the far east side of Maui. The drive along the Hana Highway is breathtakingly beautiful, but I often forget to slow down and enjoy the journey. I'm always in a rush to get to where I'm going and I don't take enough time to slow down and appreciate the beautiful place that I live. On this trip I took some time to explore and photograph the amazing journey. Here is a brisk morning photo of Upper Waikani Falls, affectionately nicknamed Three Bears Falls, found right along the road to Hana.
