The Quietest Place On Earth
The Hawaiian Islands are the most remote major island group on earth. On the second-largest island of Maui, the Haleakala volcano rises 10, 000 feet - nearly two miles - into the sky. And the massive crater located at its summit carries the unique distinction of "The Quietest Place on Earth." For some, the exquisite stillness of this stark volcanic landscape can mimic a religious experience, while for others, it simply inspires a deeper awareness of humans' place in nature. "The Quietest Place On Earth," from the producers behind APT Exchange's When the Mountain Calls, explores Maui's geological and spiritual birthplace.
