Long exposure of Old Faithful.
This sight of the sun rising over the clouds was bound to stop folks in their tracks!
I made this time-lapse video of the sunrise at Haleakala Summit in Haleakala National Park on the island of Maui, HI sometime in February this year. We almost missed this spectacle because of the mystery surrounding the starting time of parking reservation, but luckily managed to book a slot with a mere 3 spots remaining! What ensued was a near night out to grab a spot at the summit (else we'd be stuck at the Haleakala Visitor Center parking a few hundred feet below!) and battling the bitter cold and merciless winds as we waited for the sun to make its appearance! No wonder @amonajourney
and I love sunsets more than sunrises! 😂
Excerpt from the #recreationgov
website: "Rising 10,023 (3,005 m) feet above sea level, Haleakala means "house of the sun" and is where demigod Maui lassoed the sun, slowing its passage so people had more time to dry kapa (cloth) and grow food. The dormant volcano's "crater" is actually a valley carved by erosion."
Can you travel off-trail in Glacier National Park? The answer is certainly YES! Our books show you how to summit peaks using an illustrated climbing guidebook. The series features nearly 100 summit for beginning and intermediate climbers. Come to Glacier and see it from an ENTIRELY different perspective! See link in profile for more details.
I really love this photo. Volcano cinder cones (pu’u in Hawaiian) at 10,000 ft., blanketed by thick storm clouds in a brief moment when the ray of the sun showed off its colorful bow. It’s a scene I’ve never seen before and it lasted only about 10 minutes. Right after this, everything was white with nothing to see.
This iconic view of Utah’s Zion National Park typically has dozens of anxious shutterbugs climbing all over each other during sunset and sunrise, but my cousin and I arrived at 3 AM and had the entire bridge to ourselves. This is just a quick edit that I put together while waiting for my mother’s flight to land in Las Vegas. She’s going apartment shopping with me in Bullhead City, Arizona this weekend.
The scale of the @grandcanyonnps
