Haleakala National Park

Haleakala National Park, originally uploaded by echobase_2000.

Yesterday was the highlight of our Hawaii vacation for me. The one place I really wanted to go was Haleakala National Park. Now that I'm picking up on my Hawaiian language, I can tell you I think it's pronounced Holly-call-uh.

It's a massive volcano. No, you won't see any fiery lava steaming in the pit, but it's still spectacular. You get views you normally only see on an airplane. You see these huge clouds everywhere. Unfortunately, the cloud cover didn't give us a very good view of sunset, but if you're going to Maui, definitely check it out!

So we were posing for a photo when this guy walked right past us. Since he interrupted, I didn't feel bad snapping a few frames of him with his surf board.
