Haleakala Crater is still considered an active volcano, although it has been "resting" for the past couple hundred years. At 10,000 feet, it dominates the Maui skyline, and is usually 30 or 40 degrees cooler than down at the beaches. We took an 11 mile hike down one rim, through the crater floor, and out the other side. We made these photos on the edge of a small cinder cone in the middle of the crater. The austere, otherworldly beauty of this place makes a hike through it into a spiritual experience.
