Haleakala National Park - On top of the world!

A couple days ago we took off to the other side of Maui and ventured into the mountains.  We were blown away with how beautiful the drive to the Haleakala crater was.  Driving through the clouds up to 10,000 feet was absolutely amazing.   The views along the way of the entire island were so pretty.  There are many times when I take pictures and I know the moment got captured perfectly and then other times the pictures just do not do it justice.  Unfortunately this time..... they just do not do it justice.  Somethings have to been seen in person to be truly enjoyed 

So,  if anyone ever goes to Maui make sure you drive up through the Haleakala National Park. You will NOT be disappointed!  This is my 8th or 9th (I can't remember) trip to Maui over the past 10 years and it's the first time I've been up in the mountains.  It's so easy to get wrapped up with staying close the beach and ocean but there is so much more to be seen on this beautiful island.

Texting at 10,000 feet. :-)

 We saw a beautiful rainbow on our way out of the park.  Again.. picture does not do it justice. :)

Ps.  We have three days left in Maui..... where or where did the month go?
