This crater is associated with the East Maui Volcano which encompasses 75% of the Hawaiian island. Early Hawaiians called this volcano Haleakalā, which means “House of the Sun.”
In local folklore, the volcano’s summit was home to the demigod Māui who captured the sun and sent it on its slow journey across the sky. (Image coordinates: 20.732157, -156.386606)
