My granddaughter had graduated Arizona State University, and as her gift, she choose to go to Hawaii. We decided to make it a family trip. Nine of our immediate family members were able to go. We rented a house that also had a Ohana Cottage (guest house) attached, so we were all very comfortable.
After looking at hundreds of photos, I chose these to share. The Paintbrush Eucalyptus trees are on the road to Hana. Click to enlarge--they are not edited! I still can't believe they are real, they are so beautiful!
The pineapple plants were a real surprise for me. I Never gave it a thought as to how they grew. I guess I expected them to be grown on trees, not little bushes! (Remember--I'm from a small town Arizona farm.)
