I read recently that Haleakala National Park has been named as one of “the 25 best places to watch sunset around the world”. So I decided to stay to see the best sunset.
Summit area in Haleakala NP is around 10,000 feet. The view, looking down the valley, is really amazing, especially in late afternoon. Dozens of people stayed for sunset. It was truly worth the wait, even though the drive down the mountain in the dark was a little tiresome.
