Oh, yeah baby! Haleakala is as gorgeous as I remember, and it is definitely my favorite place on Maui. I love everything about it - the colors, the geology, the vastness, being up high, the views, the smells, the history....
|Haleakala is over 10,000 feet ASL!|
Driving from sea level to 10,000 feet is very cool... the switch-backy road is super fun (at least it is when you're the driver!). and the sights are unbeatable. The variety seen in the landscape in such a short distance is incredible.
After spending the better part of the day touring to and around Haleakala, we chilled in Paia and I enjoyed (in a sad way) my last Maui rum. Then it was off to the airport to catch the red-eye home.
And..... POOF! Another fabulous vacation comes to an end. However, all that really means, is that it's high time to plan the next adventure!
