Haleakala National Park, Maui, Hawaii
It's worth the long drive up to get here before sunrise. The colors in the old lava flows change as the sun moves higher in the sky. Up here at 10,000 feet, the sun seems perfectly tuned to showing of this volcanic landscape. "House of the sun" is the English translation of the Hawaiian name -- and it fits.
