Out of this world scenery! I live in Minnesota and we don’t have this type of terrain. Our group of hikers kept saying they felt like they were up on Mars. We started at the visitor center near the top and ended up at Halemau’u parking lot. Everyone in our group said we should have reversed the hike. Saw a half dozen state birds; Nene. Cool looking geese.
