This review is for the sunrise at the Haleakala Crater. It's truly a magnificent experience. We were fortunate that it was cloudy that day and the sunrise above the clouds made for a remarkable picture.
1) If you're doing the sunrise dress in full blown winter wear. I'm not talking about a jacket. I'm talking about multiple layers with a winter coat and globes, scarf, winter cap. It is FREEZING there at 5am.
2) Get there early as parking is very limited. We got there at 5:30 for a 6:43 sunrise.
3) Keep your park entrance receipt. If you're doing the Pipiwei Trail on the road to Hana, you won't have to pay another park entrance fee (as long as the two are within 3 days of each other).
4) Read #1 again :)
