Hawaii Trip on our 25th Anniversary
June 7-14, 1987
It was unusual to be standing on the road across from Haleakala Crater and realize that you were standing above the clouds!
The crater in the clouds.
We stood there watching the white clouds roll into the Haleakala Crater and at some point we realized, "Hey, we are above those clouds!" Sure enough, we were looking down on the rolling white puffy clouds.
As the clouds rolled in, they shadowed the crater, producing a new array of dark, reddish colors like part of the surface of Mars. The clouds were dissipating as they moved over the center of the crater.
We got this different perspective of the Haleakala Crater as we hiked back in to the rim of the crater. The other views were from near the parking lot and overlook, but here we got to walk along the rim.
