Honoring 100 years of National Parks
Kevin Ebi's "Rainbow on Haleakala" featured on U.S. postage stamp celebrating the National Park Service centennial.
As a child, we were often told to come in out of the rain. In a national park, however, it’s sometimes best to stay put. Otherwise you could miss out on an experience of a lifetime.
At the summit of Haleakalā, surrounded by storm clouds, I was in heaven — or at least 10,000 feet closer to it. Every so often, for a few minutes each time, the hail would stop and the Haleakalā crater would be lit by a rainbow.
Over the 90 minutes I spent shivering in the storm on the crater rim, I saw about 5 minutes' worth of rainbows. But I was warmed by the experience — an experience that remains vivid in my memory today. That’s the power of national parks and why I’m so honored that the U.S. Postal Service selected this image to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.
