I just want to walk on clouds. Mo bettah than water.The summit of Haleakala is the place where the demi-god Maui, who is believed to have created the Hawaiian Islands, snared the sun in order to slow its passage through the sky and allow his mother to dry her kapa (cloth made from pounded bark). The place of such a scene is understandably important, and continues to be treated as a sacred site by Native Hawaiians. SOURCE: NPS
