Aloha Friday ~ Haleakala

Coming to Maui? If so, bring a jacket! I'm not kidding because you're going to want to come up here!

Haleakala National Park is breathtaking but at 10,000 ft above sea level it's really chilly! No palms trees up here... Just lava rock, Silverswords, strange "Holly" like plants, and views that you would NOT believe! 

Check it out!

Happy Aloha Friday! See you next week!
