Mauna Kea Sunset

0248-031fw

Sunset from the Mauna Kea Observatories, an independent collection of astronomical research facilities located on the summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii. Those of you who were with me for the Bristlecone Pines in the White mountains of California will appreciate the altitude, approximently 13,700 ft, the same for both locations.
And yes, that is Hawaiian snow.
