Haleakalā, or “House of the Sun”, is the third largest volcano in the Hawaiian Archipelago, peaking at an elevation of 10,023 ft. Once a strategic spot for Hawaiian navigators to study the stars, the summit area is still used today to monitor and explore the heavens. The summit anchors the top of the southwest rift zone and is capped by a cinder cone known as Pu’u’ula’ula (“red hill”).
