Haleakala Crater from the Visitors Center Overlook

At first glance, this looks like an oil painting. Haleakala Crater is such an other-worldly place, it has to be seen in person to be believed.  So other-wordly in fact that NASA used this crater to train astronauts for their moon landing.   Enjoy!

Yes, this is a picture and not an oil painting!
