Ascesa alla cima del Mauna Kea 4200m. Spettacolare e impegnativa. Paesaggio lunare e distese di lava a perdita d'occhio. Sulla cima i telescopi più importanti al mondo. Il mal di montagna si è fatto sentire, ma le lacrime di gioia alla fine dicono tutto #maunakea#maunakeasummit#hilo#bigisland#hawaii
Flying above the clouds —the highest mountain in the world
Summited today! #MaunaKea the highest mountain in the state of #Hawaii at 13,800 feet (4200 meters) (the highest in the world if you count from sea floor at 33,000 feet high). The last time it erupted was 4,000-5,000 years ago.
Elevation at trailhead @Humu’ula Trail: 9,200 feet
Elevation gain: 4,600 feet on 45-60 degree incline for 5 hours to Lake Waiau (an interesting little lake with a sacred practice)?then another hour and a half to summit where a bunch of huge observatories with telescopes are.
Thank you to @Konahikingclub with which I networked via 3 degrees of soeatyairin and got a great hiking guide/partner Karen!
Tomorrow I’ll be doing minimal moving around on the beach, thank you. And the next day. And the following day as well. #sorelegs#sorehips#soreback
Check out the rough video of pics I compiled in the link below:
Testing the iPhone X camera. The only thing I could wish for right now is better low light capability and native control expansion. I suppose there could be an app for that, but I like to keep it simple and let the camera do the work, and do the work in the camera. .
“We could hold hands and
make our way up to the sun ️
We could breathe deep while
we wait for strength to run”♀️♂️♀️♂️
Listen to the moʻolelo nani loa behind “Creation” and how it connects to Maunakea, Pele and Hiʻiakaikapoliopele.

Throwback to my last day on the Big Island and finding my Tibetan singing bowls. I was looking to buy some for a while, especially after my Kundalini yoga/sound healing retreat in Kauai. I ended up finding 3 bowls that were handmade in Tibet and sold on the island by a family from Nepal. Right after leaving the store there was a rainbow over Mauna Kea, the tallest volcano in Hawaii. I have been using them for meditation every single day since then.
The day I got sick, it almost fucked my whole vacation off, I had to make multiple stops to the shitter, , then later on that evening I started running a fever, the following morning I found my self drenched in sweat, from that point on I started to get better, smh, ♂️, #hawaii#bigisland#maunakea
