Haleakala Sunrise in January, Maui
We woke up at an ungodly hour, drove over an hour up a dormant volcano. After a short hike we froze our butts off under the stars to witness this tiny neon blaze of orange emerge into the skyline. The sky turned different hues of pink, purple, and blue among the translucent clouds. Watching the sun “wake up” was one of the most amazing things I’ve witnessed.
I’ve also seen it in October, November, and May, and January was the best

You can get a sky lantern in the city, and float it into the sky among the other sky lanterns which is fun BUT you can book a tour where you & hundreds of others release them simultaneously, and that is a jaw dropping kind of beauty. Here is my post on that.
