Banyon Tree & Palapala Ho'omau Congregational Church, Kīpahulu Point, Maui, HI
Not long after I bought my first DSLR camera I found myself in Maui visiting some friends. I snapped this photo at the little church where Charles “Lone Eagle” Lindbergh is buried. The trip out to the church isn’t for the faint of heart.
Wikipedia describes the trip thusly: “The Hāna Highway is a 68-mile long stretch of Hawaii State Routes 36 and 360 which connects Kahului with the town of Hāna in east Maui. On the east after Kalepa bridge, Hana Highway continues to Kīpahulu as Route 31 (Piilani Highway), the first section of which is unofficially considered to be part of Hāna Highway. Although Hāna is only about 52 miles from Kahului, it takes about 2.5 hours to drive when no stops are made as the highway is very winding and narrow and passes over 59 bridges, 46 of which are only one lane wide. There are approximately 620 curves along Route 360 from just east of Kahului to Hāna, virtually all of it through lush, tropical rainforest.”
