夏威夷 Hawaii 2009 (3)

第三天,我們參加了一個一天團,到了哈雷阿卡拉國家公園 (Haleakala National Park),參觀島上最著名的旅遊聖地哈雷阿卡拉火山。

On the third day, we joined a day tour to go to Haleakala National Park, and visit Haleakala, the most well-known attraction on the island.

 

哈雷阿卡拉火山座落於茂宜島海拔10,023英尺之上。早期的夏威夷人將之命名為「太陽之家」。它是世上最大的睡火山,已有超過200 年沒有爆發。

Haleakala rises 10,023 feet above Maui’s coastal areas.  It’s called “House of the Sun” by early Hawaiians.  It is the world’s largest dormant volcano, has not erupted for more than 200 years.

(有關於「太陽之家」的傳說 About the Legend of the House of the Sun)

 

許多遊客到這來觀賞日出和日落。

不過由於山頂上的空氣非常稀薄,以致我在那裡呼吸十分地困難。感謝神讓我最後仍然生還!

Many visitors come here to watch sunrise and sunset.

But because the air on the summit is so rarefied, I had a very hard time breathing up there.  Thank God that I survived eventually!!

 

遊客從山頂下來後,可以到遊客中心領取一張「生還者」證書。當其他團友都在領取他們的「生還者」證書時,我們的導遊親自拿了一張「生還者」證書送給我,因為她認為我是真真正正的生還者!

Visitors can get a “survivor” certificate at the Haleakala Visitor Center after coming down from the summit.  While others were getting their own survivor certificates, our tour guide brought one to me by herself, because she thinks I’m the REAL SURVIVOR!!
