    In addition to your concierge, if you''re considering the road to Hana they sell CD driving guides to the road which tell the significance of certain areas as well as specific tips like which waterfalls are deep enough for swimming, which have hidden footpaths along the lefthand side that if you''re a good climber, you''ll be rewarded with the discovery of the waterfall ABOVE the other waterfall which you would have missed had you stayed at the road level, etc.

    My girlfriend who had made the trip on her honeymoon gave us the book, "Maui Revealed" - another great resource to use for exploring the area and the road to Hana. [​IMG]

    This was taken while on many of our drives around the island, but this was in South Maui where we could see the Molokini Isle (great for scuba diving)

    The line which is cut through the trees is the road to Hana - you literally drive right along the cliffs!

    Wow, great photos everyone!

    Unfortunately for this thread, most of the photos I have of Kauai were taken with old-school film, but here''s one in digital form: view of Bali Hai, entry point of the Napali Coast, in Kauai:

    These little tropical birds (with heads that remind me of cardinals) are cute and friendly:
