Hella views with keeks 🌍 On Top Of The World aka Haleakalā
Watching the colors dance and change with the sunrise at 10k altitude. What looks like the sea in the horizon is actually a sea of clouds!
This morning was chaos! It began when I was in the kitchen at 4am with nothing but the stove light on. I saw a shadow scramble across the floor and almost dropped my glass. It was a centipede or millipede the size of a banana! It scurried in a hole between the dishwasher. Next came an hour and a half drive to Haleakala National Park. I wasn’t able to feel my fingers and was shivering so visibly that my footage was shaky. It was totally worth the view though! I can’t believe it’s only quarter to ten😪
Beware of bad geology joke ahead: If shield-volcano-hiking was a superpower, these three would be the ConveX-Men 🦸🏻♀️🦸🏼♂️🦸🏾♂️
from one of the best experiences of 2018: biking down the Haleakalā volcano after watching sunrise from the top 🌾 happy friday, friends!
Haleakalā III - Palikū cabin lies at the opposite end of the crater’s summit and couldn’t be more diametrically opposed. After miles of Mars we found ourself returned to a Hawaiian paradise. Nestled at the base of towering green volcanic walls, Palikū was a sanctuary for the endangered Nēnē and the slightly less rare wayward Wyomingite alike.
Usually I leave sunrise photos to @lwschmoyer
as I am pretty much a night owl. However, when in HI, the time difference turns me into an early bird. Our last trip we ventured up to Haleakala to watch the sunrise. This was that thin moment where night was trying to cling on as sun began its climb through the sky. It is an awesome sight to witness.

🌋 No one seems to be able to make it all the way down to the crater 🤨. Best hike for us so far 🥾Maui’s got it all!

“‘Imi Ola” - To ‘seek best life’. Our purpose in life is to seek its highest form. The value of mission and vision.
Now this is a place I'd give 5/5 on tripadvisor!
朝1:30起床でハレアカラへ。3055m‼️ちゅうか深夜やろ。眠いし寒いし風強いし。あまりの寒さに携帯壊れるし。それでも視界からこぼれるほどの光を正面に朝を迎えると、知っているのに分かっているのにモーレツ感動が押し寄せる😭ふぁあ〜〜来てよかった〜〜！けど、携帯壊れちゃって肝心な時に写真撮れないじゃん！一緒に行っていた友人が携帯を構えている横から、指を伸ばしてポチポチ２回。それ私のね😉と無理やりもらったpicで無事ポスト❤️ #ハワイ #下界へ降りたら携帯復活 #Haleakala #maui #sunrise #hawaii
The Maui that most don’t see.
Haleakala II - My high school debate partner, Matthew Goetter, attended the University of Wyoming. At over 7,000 feet and in the high plains of Wyoming, Laramie is a bitterly cold and windy town. Immediately after graduating Matthew bought a one way ticket to Maui, with no job prospects and little cash, and has been living his best life here for 8 years now.
With Sarah, Matthew, and his fiancée Jeannine, we descended from the rim of the 10,000’ volcano. Over the next 9 miles we’d lose 3,500’ as we angled for Palikū Cabin, the light green spot far off in the distance.
Through a bizarre and desolate landscape full of long-dormant cinder cones and vistas reminiscent of Total Recall, we trekked through terrain that changed dramatically time and time again...
