Haleakala National Park Today I arrived at Haleakala National Park to visit for two days. This island is located on the east side of Maui, Haleakala is 33,233 acres. Haleakala means, “House of the Sun” in Hawaiian. Every year Haleakala has over 1.4 million visitors. This year I am one of the lucky visitors to explore this National Park. Made up of a volcano, mountains and beaches this is going to be an adventure so I’m keeping a journal about my adventure at Haleakala National Park. The park is divided into two areas, the summit and coastal Kipahulu area. I will journal about the elevation of the summit and the coastal area Kipahulu.
