Hawaiian High

This view looks like it could come from looking up any temperate continental mountain in the world bearing dark volcanic rocks. Instead, this is Hawaii's Mauna Kea, looking down toward a cloud deck, from just a few feet below its 13,802-foot summit. Even with its position in the tropics, below 20 degrees north latitude, Mauna Kea catches snow on its coldest winter days, as it had over a week before. The snow only partly melted into the porous lava below, while still occupying relatively protected troughs and holes, and texturing a peculiar perspective on the Aloha State.
