The view east over the crater from Kalahaku Overlook this morning at sunrise was gorgeous . . The Kalahaku rim overlook, at 9,324 feet above sea level provides a beautiful view of the crater floor and when the atmospheric conditions are good you can see our neighboring island of Hawaii over the clouds . . • Ka Moa o Pele • Pu‘u o Māui • Pu‘u o Pele • Kamoali‘i • Ka Lu‘u o ka ‘Ō‘ō Good Morning Maui . .

'Ae, it is always fascinating how challenging it is to convey the spirit of a place and dimensions in a photograph for those who have not yet seen the magnificent summit of Haleakalā and to imagine that from the summit at 10,023 feet above sea level, one gazes out over the clouds and down into a massive depression approximately 7 miles across, about 2 miles wide, and nearly 800 m (2,600 ft) deep and that from near this point on a clear day you may gaze out over the clouds drifting over the ocean, you may catch a glimpse of the Big Island to the east and look out over Kanaloa (Kaho'olawe Island) to the south, the island of Lana'i toward the west and the western part of the lovely island of Maui and Mauna Kahalewai far far below. There are sixteen pu'u . volcanic cinder cones. One of those cinder cones, Pu'u o Maui, the highest cinder cone, rises 500 feet from the crater's floor.

Pihanakalani Sacred House of the Sun Gathering place of high supernatural beings A place where heaven meets the earth Haleakalā is a shield volcano. Built up from the ocean floor by countless eruptions, it was once a mountain that rose several thousand feet higher than today. Haleakalā summit is a very beautiful sacred place. Much like many other cultures of the world Hawaiians believe the highest points on our islands are the most sacred. Of the four major Hawaiian islands, traditions state that the highest and most sacred places are Mauna Wai'ale'ale on Kaua'i, Mauna Ka'ala on O'ahu, Mauna Haleakalā on Maui, and Mauna Kea on Hawai'i, Mauna Kea being the most sacred place of all because it is the highest.

Jelal-ud-Din Rumi has said centuries ago, that before man fire, water, earth, air, are objects; before God they are living beings that work at His command. The meaning of what Rumi has said is that all objects, all places are as gramaphone records: what is put into them they speak; either your soul hears it or your mind, according to your development - Sufi Master, Hazrat Inayat Khan
