Hiking the Crater at The summit of the Haleakalā ("house of the sun").
Haleakalā National Park is home to Maui's highest peak. Rising 10,023 feet above sea level, Haleakala's graceful slopes can be seen from just about any point on the island. Haleakalā means "house of the sun" in Hawaiian, and legend has it that the demigod Maui lassoed the sun from its journey across the sky as he stood on the volcano’s summit, slowing its descent to make the day last even longer.
The National Parks Service describes Haleakalā as a special place that vibrates with stories of ancient and modern Hawaiian culture and protects the bond between the land and its people.... Truly Amazing!
