The article focuses on national parks and other special areas of the West for travel purpose. Especially for slow walkers, wheelchair users and those who would normally accompany them. Five tours are planned including one to the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore, which has not been offered for nine years. The Hanalei is a brand-new three bedroom, three-bathroom plus loft duplex built at the north end of Hanalei Town. It is only a block and a half from the middle of Hanalei Bay Beach and within walking distance to Hanalei Town, perhaps three blocks. This is a lucky break for a couple of adventurers. Flying Wheels has had two slots open up on a trip of a lifetime to Peru, including Machu Picchu.
