This was the morning we drove to check out Haleakala Crater while we were in Maui. My son...progressively felt worse...the higher we drove. He doesn't get car sick...ever. We figured it was altitude sickness. I swear...as soon as we started to descend...about 20 minutes down...he was asking where we were stopping for lunch...too weird. It's hard to see...but there's a pic of my daughter and hubby racing up the stairs...the little yellow sign says...walk slowly at this elevation...neither of them follows directions!
