Pu`u Wekiu

POD 48

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.

Pu`u Wekiu is the highest peak at the summit of Mauna Kea. In this picture, you can see a trail leading to the top where there is a shrine. The summit of Mauna Kea is sacred to the original people of Hawaii and their descendants. It is considered a place where deities reside.
