I always thought NJ road signs were bad. They frequently would provide some direction but then end unexpectedly, or not provide enough warning at all. But Hawaii won the race to the bottom on my last day there. When the H1 suddenly split in to three different highways without warning, I was lost, spending the next 30 minutes driving in circles.
Earlier in the day, I drove out along the coast, stopping a few scenic overlooks to catch a view of the ocean. I cut back inland, stopping by Pali Overlook, which provided a fantastic view out over the island. Then it was down to Manoa Falls, a beautiful, breathtaking view of water cascading down in to a small lagoon at the base of the cliff. The hike itself was quiet, with only moderate foot traffic, very likely because of the relatively rough terrain. Then it was back to Waikiki, thanks to the help of two hitchhikers from Seattle I picked up.
And finally, it was time to begin the 18 hour (door to door) process of returning home.
