National Park Week: Haleakalā National Park, Hawaii © Alex Messenger/Tandem Stills + MotionJoin Our GIFs Group
Each week hundreds of tourists make the journey to the summit of Haleakalā, a dormant volcano at Haleakalā National Park, to watch the sunrise at 10,000 feet above sea level. Legend says this protected place is the site where demigod Maui lassoed the sun and convinced it to slow down and make our days last longer. Thanks, Maui! Now is there any chance you can make the weekend longer, too?
