Haleakala National Park
|Photos by Joan Goldenberg|
Haleakala National Park, once known as Hawaii National Park, was established as a separate park in 1960. Park borders have increased over the years and today include over 30,000 acres, with almost 25,000 acres designated as wilderness lands. The park is topped off with Maui's highest peak at 10,023 feet, and Haleakala, the summit, seems to be perpetually shrouded in clouds, replenishing the island with essential rainfall.
