Comments by Kalani Engles:

Hawaii has always been a special place for me. My grandparents and their grandparents were born there, and as a girl I spent every summer in the Islands drinking in the culture, history and traditions. There are many spectacular places in Hawaii, but one of my favorites is the saddle road straddling the Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea volcanoes on the Big Island. It runs from the lush tropical rain forest of Hilo across a vast lava moonscape past snow capped mountain peaks to the grasslands of Waimea. Saddle Road conveys the contrasting landscapes one experiences along this highway. There are many saddle roads in the world, most featuring remarkable scenery. You can find elements of all of them in Saddle Road.
