Friday in Maui

Friday Morning we headed out on adventure. We took the minivan through its paces and fortunately it handled the challenge well. If you look at the map above you'll see where we went. We left Kihei (where we are staying), headed North on 31, then North on 30 continuing on the 340 through the marked area that says "Do Not Drive Between These Points" and then back down and around.

The photos don't do it justice, it was the thinnest most curvy one lane road you can imagine. In fact calling it a road is being very generous. There are several spots where if you are met by an oncoming car, one of you has to back up until you can find a wider spot in the road to pass. There are not many places with much of a shoulder and passing is challenging. However, the views are beautiful and almost make it worth taking your life in your hands.

Once we made it around the top of the island, we ate lunch at the Fish Company in Lahaina. We did a little shopping and site seeing before heading off to the beach to watch the sunset.
