Ventured up to the top of this 13,803 ft dormant volcano this night where there is 40% less oxygen and sub zero temperatures. Decided a bus would be the smart way up. Mauna Kea means white mountain in Hawaiian and it’s covered in snow in the winter months. This volcano is actually 33,100 ft when measured from the base at the bottom of the ocean – that’s twice as big as Everest! It is one of the best places in the world for astronomical observation and has 13 massive telescopes at it’s peak.
Sunset proved breathtaking as I watched the sun disappear under the cloud layer which we were above – a truly awesome experience
