We drove the legendary “Road to Hana” on Maui a couple of days ago. This well-travelled path stretches 34 miles along the north coast of the islands through some of the most wonderful rain forest you’ll find anywhere. The road snakes along the side of the island, traveling into and out of each of the deep valleys that cut through the hills here. In most of the valleys, you’ll find enormous waterfalls cascading down on one side of the road or other with single-lane bridges crossing over their streams. It’s a pretty spectacular drive.
One of the attractions I wanted to see on the way was a grove of Painted Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) trees. These trees are renowned for their multi-coloured bark. As each layer flakes off, a different colour is found beneath it. This is a details shot of the trunk of one of the trees but I’ll no doubt be posting other images of these lovely trees in the not-too-distant future.
