Sun Rise on Haleakala

Haleakla means House of the Sun. It's a 10,000 ft. volcano on the island of Maui. You make a very slow drive up to the top at about 3AM and arrive to find about 30 degree temp. and very thin air. The small hardships are all forgotton when the sun starts to rise above the clouds. Its awesome!
