Mauna a Wākea looking gorgeous, all decked out in white!! Loooooving this amazing picture taken by Jillian during an overflight! 🙂 The Mauna Kea Weather Center says crews are trying to clear thick snow and ice on the road to the summit of the 13,796-foot mountain. The road to the summit is still closed and park rangers say it will likely remain so through the day, unless it gets warm enough to melt the icy roadways. The summit temperature shortly before 1 p.m. today was reported at 36 degrees with a wind chill of 24 degrees! The high wind warning and wind advisory that had been posted for the summit areas of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa have expired, but winds are still blowing at 25 to 30 miles per hour at the summit of Mauna Kea. Stay warm out there ;)”

What’s Your Sacred Place?

Is it a summit like Mauna Kea? A silent forest trail? The view of a valley or of the horizon as you sit on a board waiting for a wave? Is it the serenity of a mountain lake at sunrise? Or the desert during a summer storm? Or a river where salmon still run?

Your donation (whether it’s a dollar, $5 or more) will help us make a film for Mauna Kea that takes a stand for the protection of all sacred places.
