Clouds on the Haleakala Summit Panoramic, Maui, Hawaii

An view of the heavily eroded Haleakala Volcano. It may look like a giant volcanic crater but it was actually formed due to erosion by wind and water coupled by the freezing temperatures. Throughout this eroded valley there are a few small cinder cones and lava flows that have filled in parts of the eroded valley creating an isolated and uniquely barren landscape
