I am not big on organized tours, but I think this is a MUST DO while in Maui. This adventure
begins long before the sun comes up. In order to reach the 10,023 foot summit of Haleakala
before fist light, I had to wake up at 2am! And though it was early, it was worth it!
First light from above the clouds at Haleakala crater
The ninety-minute ride to the top took us from sea level to over 10,000 feet
Looking down at the clouds towards the west
My first glimpse of the sun
Let there be light!
A view inside Haleakala Crater
The Haleakala Silverword in bloom
It's all down hill from here...
I couldn't resist a photo with this backdrop
Descending into the clouds
Fields of fresh Hawaiian pineapples
Each is individually planted and harvested...
