Haleakala

SIGHTS:


Haleakala is massive in size and elevation.  Its crater alone is seven miles across, two miles wide and 2,600 ft. deep.  As  the sun peeks above the cloud line, illuminating the cinder slopes, it  proves why it’s name translates to “House of the Sun”.  


Haleakala National Park offers extensive potential for the hardy explorer.  Of it’s 28,655 acres, 19,270 of them are wilderness habitats.  The summit is over 10,000 ft. elevation.   It’s red cinder and craters become visible as the sun rises and casts it light across the enormous Mountain.  Miles of hiking trails traverse Haleakala through a variety of climactic regions.
