Everybody wants to prove that they have made it (by car!) to the top of Haleakala. Just to help you, there's even a sign to give you the elevation.
Science City (also seen in Aerial Picture #5 ) is a collection of Air Force telescopes that are used to track satellites and, by use of special instruments, also records changes in the activity on the surface of the Sun.
From the Puu Ulaula Overlook, one gets a great view down Sliding Sands into the northern part of the Crater floor. It's hard to believe that the floor is more than 3,000 feet below the rim, so watch out if you decide to walk down the trail to the crater floor!
From here you can continue on to Stop 10.3.
