Next, we visited the island of Maui and drove up to see Haleakala.
Haleakala (House of the Sun) is a 10023 ft. high shield volcano that covers over 75% of the island of Maui.
The last eruption at Haleakala took place in 1750 so we felt pretty safe from volcanic bombs or Pele's hair. :)
The biggest danger that day was not driving off the road on the way down as we looked down on the clouds onto a beautiful rainbow!
We also happened to see a Pueo, Hawaiian Owl, as we were driving down from the mountain. I didn't get to photograph it but here is what the owl looks like.
Next stop: The Big Island of Hawaii and the Kilauea Volcano.
