Haleakala Sunrise
Haleakalā ("house of the sun") is the volcano that created 75% of Maui. A favorite for many is driving to the summit to watch the sunrise. At 10,023 feet elevation, we started our journey at 3:30 AM to watch the colors evolve before the 5:45 AM sunrise.

Haleakala Sunrise
Beautiful! Take your jacket, it was 45 degrees there and is usually around 20 degrees cooler that the coasts below.

Andaz, Wailea Maui
The wonderful, new Andaz resort in Wailea was our home for three nights of pampering. Amazing place! Their main restaurant, Ka'ana Kitchen, features mostly local ingredients and is outstanding.

Three infinity pools flow into the fourth pool. A fifth "tranquilty adults only" pool is located in another area.
