Hana Highway (1982)

One of the 600 twists and turns on the road to Hana, on the island of Maui, Hawaii. The yellow sign reads “Falling Rock.”

Although there’s more traffic now, the Hana Highway hasn’t changed much since I took this picture during my first trip to Hawaii. I didn’t record the specific location, but it’s representative of what the road is like. Some sections are narrower than this, and don’t have a center stripe.

This is also one of the last pictures I ever took with my Pocket Instamatic 60. The Kodak lab returned my Kodachrome 64 slides of Oahu and Maui with a notice that slide film was being discontinued in the 110 format. With the demise of the only film capable of getting decent image quality from a 13x17mm frame, it was time to retire the camera.
