The sunrise was gorgeous and as it rose we were treated to the Hawaiian chant to the sun performed by one of the interpretive naturalists at the Haleakala National Park. The whole experience was very moving and added added a uniquely wonderful Hawaiian cultural experience.
We opted to rent bikes and do the famous Maui Downhill Bike Ride after the sunrise. It was fantastic - beautiful scenery at every hairpin turn!
