Group overlook the volcano crater

At the top of Haleakala volcano, the crater is an impressive sight. But its rather cold.

The interior of the crater is a Martian landscape of rust colours

Oh my Lord! Speedos on display!

Sunbathing revealed rather too much British white flesh for the locals comfort.
