Garden of the Gods, Lanai, Hawaii

You have to agree, Hawaii is pretty isolated to begin with.

Our first view of Hawaii

And of the six main islands accessible to visitors, Lanai (or Lana’i) is probably the most isolated.

Crossing to Lanai

And Lanai’s Garden of the Gods, over six miles from the nearest paved road down rough dirt tracks, takes isolation to a whole new level.

But boy is it worth the trip!

Yet the thing that makes the Garden of the Gods so unique, is the feeling of isolation you get that goes beyond just miles. In fact, staring out across its red sandy expanses scattered with rugged boulders and almost devoid of vegetation, you could be forgiven for thinking you’re on Mars!

    Great post for this week’s challenge. 😀

  2. What an interesting place. I have only been to Oahu and the Big Island, so it is hard for me to imagine one of the Hawaiian islands with that sort of deserty landscape. Beautiful though–I would love to visit someday…

I'd love to hear what you've got to say!
