Hawaii Photo of the Week: Haleakala Crater
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!

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.
Very Ethereal and Spiritual…
Love going up to Haleakala. Very peaceful and moving. The silence is deafening at times, amazing place, always in total awe!!!
It looks surreal and eerily peaceful.
It’s an amazing place
