Sunset at Mauna Kea

One of the best adventures we had on the Big Island of Hawaii was to book a Mauna Kea sunset tour. The tour took us in four wheel drive vans to the summit to watch the sun set and learn about the observatories, geology, ecology and spirituality of Mauna Kea.

The sun sets beyond the clouds. In the foreground (left to right, you can see Keck II and the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF).
