Original hand-drawn pen and ink/watercolor story map of one of the most unique, and youngest states of the United States of America, Hawaii, also known as the Aloha State and Paradise of the Pacific. This map celebrates the vibrant, tropical paradise located about 2,400 miles west of the continental U.S. in the Pacific Ocean. The eight-island chain featuring the islands: Hawaii, Maui, Kaho’olawe, Lana’i, Moloka’i, O’ahu, Kaua’i, and Ni’ihau, is the result of a tectonic plate that has passed over a volcanic hot spot creating a chain of islands that range in age with the oldest in the northwest.
Being physically separate and distant from the contiguous United States, Hawaii has a tropical climate that creates ecosystems perfect for a variety of plants and animals to thrive. The rainforests, beaches, and reefs are home to: green sea turtles, black tip reef sharks, reef triggerfish, humpback whales, manta rays, spinner dolphins, Hawaiian monk seals, Scarlet Honeycreepers, Lokelani Roses, and Yellow Ilmas.
This map highlights features that make each island unique as well as attract millions of adventurers and tourists to complete at least one bucket list trip of their life. The big island, Hawai’i home to the first king of Hawai’i, King Kamehameha, features: Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (Hawai’i), Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park (Hawai’i), Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historic Site. Maui, to the north showcases: Haleakala National Park (an unparalleled park in its beauty with brilliant rock colors formed from volcanic activity), Seven Sacred Pools, Waimoku Falls, Waikamoi Falls, Twin Falls, and Honokohau Falls. The island of Kaho’olawe includes Pu’u Moaulanui. West of Maui, Lana’i has the mountain Lana’ihale. The next island to the north Moloka’i boasts the stunning Kalaupapa National Historical Park. O’ahu, home to the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu, also features the Honouliuli National Historical Site, as well as the historic Pearl Harbor National Memorial. Farthest north, the islands of Ni’ihau and Kaua’i (the garden island) include the unparalleled Na Pali coast as well as extraordinary plants and wildlife.
