Travel: Maui

Hawaii Day 5: Maui 

We woke up around 2 in the morning to get on a bus and drive from sea level to 10,000 feet in around one hour. Haleakalā National Park looks like Mars and framed the most beautiful sunrise. Hundreds of people from all over the world stood with us at the top of this mountain in the freezing cold, waiting for the sun. We were above the clouds, looking over a volcano that exploded long ago. What amazed me most was that in those moments, people from around the world shared something. All of our differences came together and we just watched and waited together like family. A glimpse of our God speaking to our hearts.
