With this view, you can maybe better see what the layout is. That's Mauna Kea in the
background and the shoulder of Mauna Loa on the extreme left. For this trip, I left my house
up there near the caldera and drove down to where I started hiking, a 20-mile drive. You can
clearly see the pali (the steep cliffs) that I kept taking pictures of. All that black lava flow that
you see comes from the Mauna Ulu eruption.
|that stupid 20 mph wind!). Really only stopped for 15 minutes for lunch (a Clif bar). Was close
to sunset (10 minutes) when I got back to the car so I cut it pretty fine. (There was still plenty
of daylight left, however, and I was packin' some good lights anyway so I wasn't worried.)
