Crater hikers: bottom from left Eddie, Glori, Hanalei, Dylan; middle Jeremy & Erik; top is Maka'io.

 

These seven characters just did the 12-mile Haleakala Crater hike on a day so cloudless and beautiful we were all screaming for joy. Guides Dylan, Jeremy and Erik are now full-fledged crater guides, and Maka’io has one more training to do. Eddie, Glori and Hanalei are new guides who came along just for fun. The whole hike was spectacular –great weather, crystal clear day. We hiked in at 10:30 and were out by 4 pm.
