My parents and I woke up and got on a van for the airport at the hotel early in the morning to catch a flight to Maui. It was the first time for me to visit Maui. I am so exited like a kid on a field trip at school. We hit Maui by 8 o’clock and got on the operator’s bus and headed for Haleakala, the highest mountain with its elevation of 3,05 meters. I saw the clouds stretched below us and we were simply astaunded by the views of the crater in front of us. It was like we were watching views of the Mars. It was windy and cold like Winter. I never thought we would experience this in June in Hawaii.  It was hot at the town below and we were wearing a T’shirts just 30 minutes before. We put just a window breaker. That was not enough to keep warm. We took refuge to the visitor’s center and decided to kill time before the departure time to come.
