Sunrise descent

We left the telescope just as the sun was rising above the inversion layer thousands of feet below us. On the drive down the shadow of Mauna Kea was very obvious in the west, but just as we reached the turn off for Submillimeter Valley, the view was so nice we had to stop and take a few photos of Hualalai and the shadow. I don't have too many sunrise shots from the mountain, I'm usually so tired the last thing I want to do is stand outside with a camera when there's a hot breakfast and bed waiting a few thousand feet below, but it was worth pulling over!

I agree! That was worth delaying breakfast for. :-)
