Slice of Life Day 24: Haleakala, Highest Point on Maui

Don't forget to visit other blogs at
After seeing the sunrise on the volcano Haleakala, we drove a short distance so we could see the other side of the island.
The view of the volcano looked like we had landed on the moon. This crater is amazing.
The view from any side of Maui was beautiful.
This early morning view while the sun was still creeping up the sky was breath taking!
Since it was winter (February) when we took this tour, it was only 20 degrees at the top of this mountain. The wind was strong at this altitude, too. So the wind chill was even lower. You can see the heavy jackets and gloves that they gave us for this tour. What an amazing site!


  1. Sounds like an experience you'll have forever. You can see how happy you are in the last photograph.

  2. You are seeing so many interesting and beautiful places. Love the picture of you in those coats...in Hawaii....so many people think it never gets cold there...but the elevation can bring on the cold! So glad you are sharing this with your pictures. Jackie http://familytrove.blogspot.com/

  3. I have never associated Maui with cold weather! Makes sense, though. Continuing to enjoy this tour through Hawaii!
