一提到 Hana 之路總是驚見敬畏表情, 你真的要去嗎? 要自己開車去嗎? 明是絕美風景天堂之路被形容得像通往地獄之路, 讓我跟老媽很緊張。

老媽不放心我開車想聘請當地人, 甚至一度說服我取消行程。車子都租了, 旅館也訂了, 不願最後一刻前功盡棄的我向老媽保證絕對沒問題。

出發前從飯店拿的那張 Highlights – Road to Hana 很好用。在公路 360 和 365 的交界處, Hana 公路的里程將從零開始計算, 而這張紙上照順序列出了各的景點, 在著名的景點旁還會標 “A Must Stop!” 前人種樹後人乘涼, 我在心裡向撰寫這張紙的人深深一鞠躬!

Hana 公路名不虛傳, 蜿蜒曲折, 轉彎的地方大多沒有大圓鏡, 頗令人膽戰心驚。 據說沿途有五十幾座只有一輛車子能通過的單向橋, 好險當時已過旺季亦非假日車輛極少, 不然錯車就不知要花多少時間, 更不用說開這蜿蜒的山路了。

大家把 Hana 公路描述得太可怕, 真正上路後反而覺得還好。 這公路挑戰性十足! 很高興我是駕駛, 方向盤可以忽右忽左大轉, 一旁是山一旁是海的絕佳風景看得心曠神怡, 可惜我沒有準備音樂, 一路上只收到一台播放聖誕歌曲的電台, 雖然不太應景但聽到耳熟能詳的聖誕歌曲, 老媽十分開心。

Keanae Village 被寫了個 MUST stop! 一不小心差點錯過。這位在海邊的傳統夏威夷小村以種植芋頭為主要經濟活動。 寧靜的小村卻面對了兇猛的大海, 黑炭顏色的岩石上爬了似蓮的白水木。這海濺起的浪花兩層樓高, 讓人不敢靠近, 一旁的樹雖然高大但根全部暴露在外, 還得抵抗海風, 不知道這村落的生活是不是和這棵樹一樣艱苦。
