Haleakalā, Maui Island

The island of Maui in the Hawaiian archipelago is name for a demigod who fished it and all the other islands out from the ocean. The geological version of the story begins at the bottom of the sea, where the Pacific plate slowly cruises over a hot spot and magma emerges to form these islands - to this day. The peak of Maui's eastern volcano is called "Haleakalā," and translates to "house of the sun." Every day, tourists and residents alike brave the frigid element of the summit to witness the sun's comings and goings above the clouds.
