Mililani Town


This photo was taken from a pedestrian over pass in Mililani Town which is in the center of the island of Oahu. The interesting thing about this photo is that even in the middle of the island, you can still see the ocean in the distance.

The road is named Kamehameha Highway. It runs (for the most part) vertically through the center of the island. It is named after one of Hawaii's most celebrated Kings, who ruled in the 1700s. He is most known for uniting Hawaiians across the islands. Pervious to this each island existed autonomously.

Here is a map of the island to help you visualize it (if your interested) ... Kamehameha Highway is the one numbered "99". http://www.aaccessmaps.com/show/map/oahu Incidentally, I was facing south (toward Pearl Harbor) when I took this photo.

I only wish Hawaii had vineyards and fields of sunflowers ... ahh ... the French countryside ... I've only seen it in the movies (and on TV), but I'm sure I'll see it in person some day.
