Sunrise at Haleakala

Leave a comment

The other day I mentioned that Erik and I woke up at 3:30am to do something amazing that I have never done before, even when I previously lived in Maui. We went to watch the Sunrise at Haleakala!



It was absolutely amazing! We actually didn’t even watch it from the best spot (we hear) so we are going to take another trip soon šŸ™‚ I’ll keep you posted!

Going up there I knew it would be chilly, but I definitely underestimated how much I have acclimated to this hot weather because I was FREEZING! I’m even a little embarrassed to admit I barely got out of the car. It was 55 degrees. Ya…

After the sun was up we drove about 20 minutes further up the crater and reached the very top! The view was amazing and we will definitely try to watch the sunrise from there next time we go! We Erik walked around a little bit to get some photographs, and when he came back he found me like this…

I actually drank 2 of these and had the shakes for the rest of the day. Not fun.

Hope you all had a great Labor Day!
