Haleakala National Park - Part 2: Sunset and Sunrise

Haleakala Sunset

Haleakala Sunrise

I recorded video of sunrise - 24 minutes. Now I need to figure out, how to downsample it to 2-3 minutes to achieve effect of time lapse.

Truly amazing place! These pictures are from a small 10 km hike along Sliding Sands Trail in Haleakala National Park. Sliding Sands trail from crater to ocean is in my to-do list!
Other pictures from our trip to Maui are coming after tea break.

We had some family fun completing this jigsaw puzzle. The trick is - what you see on the box, is not what you going to get at the end - check this out how "solved" Mystery #1 looks like. Don't check, though, if you want to have your own fun :)

Northwest Pacific Raptor Center

Northwest Pacific Raptor Center

Last Saturday (almost on the way to Duncan swim meet) we stop at Northwest Pacific Raptor Center. It is a true attraction, very educational and unique photo opportunity. Check their web-site and stop there on your way north up on island to watch their demonstration at 1:30 pm every day. Highly recommended!
