One of my favorite birthdays EVER! This weekend excursion to Maui, with Meagan and James found us driving up the 10,023-foot-high mountain to peer down into the crater of the largest dormant (technically considered active) volcano in the world, Mount Haleakala, House of the Sun. Instead of a hopper to #Maui you would have thought we had taken a shuttle to the Moon! Words fail to describe the unearthly landscape but Mark Twain called it "the sublimest spectacle" of his life. I'd have to agree with the man! #PhotoBucketList Item √

Indeeeeeed Susan, It was so surreal to be in that environment to take the image. I have a HUGE print of this on my living room wall. Every time, it brings me right back to the most unearthly place I have photographed so far!

It is fun to take different times of the year. Your story motivates me to go back up, I live here on Maui and have taken shots as well, no other place like it anywhere! Great shot by the way!

Oooh Patti, there is something so incredibly special about Mount Haleakala!! While we were nearly to this location a Puao came out of now where and was floating next to my car window and just staring at me. I couldn't BREATH! We stopped the car and I jumped out as he floated down over a ridge and in seconds I got to where I last saw him and he was GONE! It was an incredibly moving experience for me and then we made it to the lookout over the cinder cones and I again, no breath, no words! The only other time I have felt such a deep connection to a place was when I took my shoes of at dawn and entered the Temple at Tah Prohm in Cambodia.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a message. I am so pleased you liked it considering this is where you live. My daughter spent ten years on Oahu this trip to Maui was a very special birthday gift from our Meagan and my son-in-law James. They also are photographers.
