Can never find a good day to get up to the summit. Originally I would like to wait for a day with a clear sky, but it never happens. It got more and more foggy and hazy and I went up there on the worst day. I will give a 5 star if the summit is not covered with clouds most of the time I stayed in Maui.
The summit was incredible, but better than looking at pictures. The colors of the smaller crators varied from red to yellow to brown, very remarkable. Temperature was certainly quite cool, in the lower fifties. The visitor center at the summit was the most interesting with a model of the crator. The other visitor center at 7,000FT was a waste of time.
The road up there was fine with lots of turns. At the 3rd mile marker on 377 there was a fruit stand with very good maya lemon and other citris. In general the drive was much better than the Hana drive and much shorter.
Missed a family photo with the 10,000FT mark, and that's the only regret.
