Sunrise at Haleakala National Park is a life altering experience. From the pitch black to the breathtaking views that reveal you are standing above the clouds as the sun rises above them. Then as the sun lights up the area around you, you look down to realize you are standing at the rim of a large dormant volcanic crater with colorful volcanic vents that make you feel you were transported to another planet. At 10,023 feet, this is a view many will never experience and we are honored to share it with the world!

Location: Haleakala National Park, Maui, Hawaii
