Stretching across east Maui, Haleakala National Park is home to Haleakala Crater, an active, but not currently erupting volcano, and Maui’s highest peak. Rising over 10,000 feet above sea level, Haleakala’s graceful slopes can be seen from just about any point on the island. Haleakala means “House of the sun” in Hawaiian, and legend has it that the demigod Maui lassoed the sun itself from its summit to slow the sun’s journey across the skies.
