Haleakala Sunrise

Did something on this trip to Maui that we've never done before - finally made it up the volcano to view the sunrise.  It was something that Alyssa wanted to do on this trip, and she got her wish on the morning of August 2.  So glad now we decided to get up early (2:15 am) to make it up to the summit (10,023 feet) to view the glorious sunrise.  Yes, I did a lot of journaling on this one, as I wanted to remember the story of our ride up to document our adventure.  I used one of the techniques I learned at Yearbook Tech for my first page in the spread - breaking long amounts of text into multiple columns instead of just one - the reader is more likely to read the story if it's broken up than if it's in one monotonous paragraph.  Makes for a more visually appealing page, too!

I especially liked the layout for this one ... especially how you did the journaling and how you showed the progress of the sunrise.
