Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy (A Hawaiian Sunrise)
High above the stark volcanic landscapes of Haleakala National Park, a blinding sun rises dreamily through the clouds.
Maui’s sandy beaches, lush tropical vegetation and coffee plantations obliterated by the radiance of our brightest star.
In this “house of the sun,” the summit of Haleakala Mountain is the best place from which to witness this sacred event.
The drive up Haleakala Crater Road, to the peak of the mountain can take up to 2 hours. For the best experience, try to arrive at the Haleakala Visitor Centre 30 minutes before sunrise. Bring warm clothes. It’s frigid at 10,000 feet above sea level.
