8. Mahalo!!
I've been to that exact spot, I know it well. It gets butt-cold up there, but it's sooo worth it when that sun comes up.

Watching the sun rise is such a beautiful and hopeful way to start the day. :thumbsup:

:hi: Aloha!

9. E komo mai, and welcome to Hawai'i!

Maui no ka 'oi! Wouldn't you know, I've been over there exactly once in over five years out here (no we did not go up. Mom is much too wussy of a driver to drive up that road. :( )

edit: spelling

:) I was there in 1983. This is a snapshot of me on the top of Haleakala at sunrise (taken by my sister):

(Edited to add: I was wrapped in a huge blanket we borrowed from our hotel. It was friggin' COLD up there! And I'm standing close to the exact spot where you took your pic!)

12. I'm so glad I checked in before going to bed one last time...
these are fantastic photos!!!

How do things seem on Maui...I mean, was there a lot of earthquake damage that you can see?

Can't wait to see the rest of your pics!

Thanks again!! :hi:

16. Did you get a chance to meet King Ka'mon'I'wanna'leya?


He's very imposing. And his staff is quite large.

Nice pics, BTW.
