Haleakala Crater Sunset

Haleakala Crater is the peak of Maui. One of the biggest “adventures” you’re peddled while there is a bus trip to the top to watch the sunrise followed by a bike trip down the mountain. Yeah, seems kinda cool, but what fun is there if you’re just coasting the whole way? Plus we weren’t interested in the prices they were charging. So we opted to drive up for a sunset. 10,200ish feet below us it was about 80 degrees… making it about 40 degrees up here… without wind chill. Needless to say, I didn’t pack for this sort of weather and froze. It was fun, though, and well worth the time and effort to get here.
