How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

If you are lucky you may be treated to something available in only a few places in the world.

This cache brings you to the Leleiwi Lookout in the Haleakala National Park. Many visitors miss this lookout in their rush to reach the summit. This is a mistake because they miss one of the best views of the crater and the possibility of seeing a glory or "Specter of the Brocken". This is when you see your own shadow on the clouds below surrounded by one or more rainbows. The Hawaiians felt blessed to experience this because they believed this was a promise from heaven that their souls would be taken care of.

To reach this cache watch for the parking lot for the Leleiwi Lookout after the 17 mile mark. Walk across the street and follow the trail to the cache location.

To log this cache you must first e-mail us the answers to the following questions:

1. Where does the trade wind inversion trap clouds?
2. What side of the island does most of the precipitation fall?
3. How many red arrows are on the sign?
Please do not give the answers in your log (even if it is encrypted)!

Small note on cache maintenance: We have a friend (non-cacher) who lives local to the cache (Paia) and checks on it for us
