Tantalus Overlooks

Yesterday Dianne and I drove a road called Tantalus/Round Top. It's a windy, at times narrow road that hugs the roughly southern side of the mountains north of Honolulu. Along the drive, there are multiple spots where you can pull over to the side of the road and enjoy the view. The lush vegetation lining the road is beautiful too.

We had made the drive many years ago, but thought we'd go again. We found a state park off of Round Top that had a wonderful overlook. The view was amazing and the photos don't do it justice. You could see everything from Diamond Head crater to the Honolulu airport. The photo below is us at the overlook. In the background you can see the runway of the Honolulu airport. I have several panorama and HDR photos that I took from this overlook and one other. You can see them all in the photo set here.
