Mauna Kea

Mauna Kea offers a stunning view from 13,796ft, and is accessible via 4WD on a steep gravel road.  On our visit, the cloud layer was around 7000ft or so.

The consistent clear weather, great air quality (with low humidity), and limited light pollution lead to an excellent site for the numerous telescopes sited here.  The air is uncomfortably thin.
