It's 3 AM on Haleakala. Goodbye Mr Moonlight. I get an hour of darkness before astronomical twilight starts to lighten the sky.
A steady stream of visitors drive up the road to the summit. I turn off and find a quiet overlook all for myself, away from lights, noise, and people, where I can stand alone on the crater rim and enjoy the moment. There is no wind - the place is still. Complete silence. And I stand there in total awe. The Milky Way rises high above me.
The moment felt giant - like dawn of time giant.
The call of a wild bird splits the silence with the grace of a samurai's sword. It isn't long before twilight blue splits the sky. I sit back on my rocky perch and count cinder cones as they emerge from the dark.
Moments like this make everything right.
