The best part of the 22 mile bike ride was being able to stop along the way and see the breathtaking views, eat fresh banana nut bread and experience this side of Maui.
If you plan to visit Maui you need to add this to your to do list.
La mejor Pete de esta experiencia fue poder parar y observar las vistas increíble de Maui. Poder comer pan de cambur y ver los lados de las montañas en Maui!

1. Wake up and watch the sunrise
2. Walk above the clouds.
3. How do you get back down?
You ride a 22 miles journey downhill from an elevation of 10,023’ to the base of Haleakalā volcano 🌋 🚲 Crazy fast! Would you do it?
1. Levantarse temprano y ver el sol nacer
2. Caminar por encima de las nubes
3. Como bajas?

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Haleakalā. For appreciating our partners month, we want to recognize all of the amazing work our volunteers do to help us protect and preserve Haleakalā. Mahalo!
In 2016 alone, Haleakalā logged more than 16,000 hours of volunteer service! Volunteering is a great way to enjoy our park- and help preserve it so future generations can too!
There are many ways to volunteer at Haleakalā. We host trail stewards, school groups, service wilderness trips and more. To learn about opportunities check out our website: https://www.nps.gov/hale/getinvolved/volunteer.htm
Or you could get involved with our non-profit service partners, The Friends of Haleakalā National Park. They lead volunteer service trips into our wilderness area to help us control alien plants and maintain our trails and facilities. Check out their website: http://fhnp.org/
The Pacific Whale Foundation leads bi-monthly Haleakalā service trips to help us remove invasive plants at the summit of Haleakalā. Joining our Pacific Whale partners on their Volunteers on Vacation program is a great way for Maui visitors to get involved in protecting our resources.

As I sit here procrastinating eating m&ms till I make myself sick.
I wonder if Finals are supposed to suck this much. Looking forward to not thinking as much and disappearing into the woods.
Exploring the South Maui coast this morning until the road ended at La Perouse Bay and the awesome lava fields of Ahihi-Kina’u Natural Area Reserve. Mmmm... lava fields...!
Made the stupidly awesome decision to continue on to the Pi’ilani Highway and explore the south face of Haleakalā and drive my Jeep down/up cliffside dirt roads (again).
2am wake up and -4 degrees was totally worth it to see the sunrise at Haleakalā. Seeing the sunrise and the moon at same time, being above the clouds where everything is still. Absolutely breathtaking. #hawaii #haleakalā #maui #sunrise
The thing that struck me most about the summit of Haleakalā was the absolute silence. No sounds of wind, birds, insects; just stillness.
¿Os habéis parado alguna vez a escuchar o sentir la energía de la montaña? Recarga tanto como las olas del mar y es que la naturaleza tiene tanto que contarnos!!! #maui #nationalpark #hawaii #haleakalā #hapiness #nature #love #hawaiimountains #volcano
Por cierto la montaña que se ve al fondo en la segunda foto es el volcán de la Gran Isla Hawaii, me alucinó viva estar ahí, a 13.000 pies de altura, ahí es donde está el observatorio de la Nasa, único lugar del mundo donde mejor y más estrellas se ven. Doy fe ✋🏼
Add Haleakalā to your bucket list. It’s a must-see for sure! 🤙🏻
Enjoying the views at 10000 feet above the island of Maui. The power of nature to change our landscape is hard to take for granted when you stand on top of the volcano that is creating new land while watching the power of the ocean to erode it away. #maui #Haleakalā #volcano #powerofnature
Walking into the crater, you see back in time to when fire and violence created this place, this island that is pure peacefulness. You feel the altitude’s chill, the proximate sun’s warmth. Thin air parches your skin as you imagine wading through a river of lava that once was. Sand crunching beneath your shoes is the only sound, so you talk, you hear sentences that you don’t consciously create. Everything is clear. Your heart knows.
Here is a glimpse of park staff installing the new exhibit “Nā Mo‘olelo (Stories) O Haleakalā: Looking at Nature through Mo‘olelo” at the Haleakalā Visitor Center near the summit of Haleakalā. This exhibit explores nature through the lens of Hawaiian mo'olelo (stories, myths, history and tradition). We hope that your visit to Haleakalā will include this exhibit, which will be up through March, 2019. (KEM)
