Boxfish Swimming By

There are a fair number of Boxfish at Kahalu'u Beach and they are so curious that
they seem agressive - they will follow the humans around.

Bullethead Parrotfish and Coral

These fish are solitary - they don't school, but they will often tag along with other fish.

Species: Chlorurus sordidus (Bullethead parrotfish)

Yellow Tang's Feeding

There are a few types of coral.  The brain coral is fun but there is also a rounder coral that is common.
Where bare rock is exposed sea urchins are often present.

Yellow Tang's Feeding in a School

This was at the place of refuge - the fish were less tame than Kahalu'u Beach, but the background
was much more interesting and the water was clearer.

Species: Zebrasoma flavescens (yellow tang)

Species: Zanclus cornutus (Moorish idol)

Turtle With People Behind

Kahalu'u Beach is very popular with tourists, locals and sea turtles.
I was quite surprised that the turtles seemed undisturbed

Species: Chelonia mydas (green sea turtle)

Mark with Sea Turtle

I felt bad about this photo - I'm not sure Mark should have been so close.
The turtle wasn't disturbed, but it might have set a bad precedent.

Turtle In Water

Kahalu'u Beach is very popular with tourists, locals and sea turtles.
The turtles get pushed around by the waves and sometimes find themselves high on rocks and half to crawl off.

Offerings on Top of Mauna Kea

Given the powerful gusts up here, I can understand why there are so many rocks.

Alter on Top Of Mauna Kea

From what I understand, offering are put on top and they fall through.
Periodically, a guardian comes up and buries the offerings in the base.

Cinder Cones On Mauna Kea

From what I understand, these cones are pushed up during eruptions, but lava may not flow out of them.

Radio Telescope in a Sea of Clouds

The Radio telescopes were scattered all around the peak.  We are standing on the summit.

Approaching Top Of Mauna Kea
The lead truck (with the telescope personal in it) keeps our speed down. Seeing the domes show up in the martian environment is unexpected.

Entering the Moonscape

As we passed about 11,000 feet plant life has thinned out to nothing.  Apparently there
are insects up here that prey on insects that get blown up, but otherwise, it's dead.

Ford Expedition on Saddle Road

This is our 7 person gas guzzling Ford Expedition on Saddle Road (which we weren't allowed to drive on).
We got out to the field and were amazed by how different the landscape was from our resort.

Driving up Mauna Kea

The base station is at the bend in the road down there.  There is still some plants here, but they quickly
thin out.

Apparently, this was the favorite resting place of Keoua, high chief of Kona.
