For the many times we have been to Maui, we have never been to Haleakalā. We either didn’t want to wake up early or spend the day in the car. Today we finally decided to make the trip and it was totally worth it.
People are not kidding when they say it is like a different planet up there. It was simply beautiful and amazing. We chose to go midday after stopping for a very late breakfast in Kihei. The weather up top was a bit cloudy, but we still had amazing views of the crater and the big island. It was also 63 degrees up there, so wayyyy warmer than we thought.
Totally worth the drive. I might even try and sunset or sunrise trip next time.
