protea flowerMount Haleakala Science Lab On Friday we took a trip to East Maui via the Road to Hana. since we had our grandson with us we decided to just drive to the Garden of Eden ( about 1/3 of the way to Hana). We stopped at Twin Falls on the way to the garden. after hiking the Garden we headed back to Hookipa Beach and Baldwin beach.
