Maui Vacation 2020 – Haleakala Sunrise

One trip I highly recommend is driving to the top of Haleakala for sunrise. The crest of is at 10,023 feet and just a few days ago got a nice dusting of snow. Haleakala (which means the house of the sun) is the dormant volcano that occupies the southern portion of the island of Maui. If you make the trip please bring some warm clothing the temperatures on the crest are in the mid 30’s and 40’s. From the top you have a commanding view of the island and you can see the Volcanoes on the Big Island of Hawaii. The sunrise here is unbelievable , there is usually a layer of clouds that hug the crater and the clouds and colors are off the charts. To make it to the top one must leave by 4:00 am. Try not to miss this wonderful sight !
