After thai food with the parentals and checking into the Ritz, we were in bed and back up by 1 FREAKING am. It took about an hour and a half to get to the bike company – the bottom of Haleakala. We sat around while the company got everyone else situated. We all got onto a bus and made our way up by 3:45 am. It was FREEZING up there!! The layers we had on and the windbreakers they provided were not enough.
Good morning, boys!
Trevor took video of the sunrise with our GoPro.
After many, many, many jokes, the sun finally rose.
The trail we took in the dark.
Inside the volcano.
On our bikes. Ready to ride 22 miles back to the bike co. office at the bottom.
Michael tried to take off his windbreaker pants.
After the craziness that is biking down Haleakala, we took photos.
Popping wheelies? Haha.
The bike started to get away from Michael. Haha.
We ate next to the Haleakala Bike Co. office – The North Shore Cafe. We definitely got some looks from locals. The food was delish though. So, worth it.
Michael’s chocolate chip waffles.
My spam and eggs!
Later that night, we all met up at the lobby bar to have a few drinks – Celebrating dad’s birtday!
We then at dinner up the road called Sansei. This is my dad’s favorite sushi restaurant.
The shrimp tempura.
And the one and only, butterfish!!
We love you, Dad. You’re the best :)
