Looking down into Haleakala’s crater (photo courtesy of my wife), yesterday. It was as a beautiful day to be up there. Up above the clouds, no wind. I have not visited the crater for two years, but so love being there. It is a different world. The size of the crater I find hard to grasp, and then the power of nature that created this mountain that rises up 10,000ft. A few years back I walked through the crater and want to go back, this time to stay overnight in one of the huts available for long distance hikers.

So beautiful and humbling.
