Free trip!  Well, at least the accomodations.  Elana was selected as teacher of the year in her district and won a week in Hawaii.  We just had to get there, but what a better way to use frequent flyer miles!

On the top, in the cold, cold air.  You can see the opposite rim on the other side.

Haleakala Volcano plants
There were these strange plants on top that apparently don't grow everywhere.  They are very sensitive to trampling, so we had to keep back.

Haleakala Crater
One of many views into the crater of the volcano.  If you look closely, you can see walking trails down in there.

Elana and her parents.  Rumor has it, the ancient locals used that pinnacle as a guard post to the valley.

Lahaina Banyan Tree
In the middle of the city of Lahaina, on the north side of Maui, was a huge old Banyan tree.  Very cool to hang out under the tree.
