Snow covered summit


Many people think that the telescopes on Mauna Kea are at the summit. That's not quite correct, the true summit is undeveloped but it certainly attracts some of the more athletic and fit hikers. This picture was taken a few days ago when the snow and ice was still somewhat pristine, although the ski tracks and footprints would suggest, some might argue, that we weren't the first group to visit the summit region after the recent storm.
