Mauna Loa596 viewsTaken 4/6/06
Rising gradually to approximately 13,679 feet above sea level, Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on our planet. This enormous volcano covers half of the Island of Hawai`i and by itself amounts to about 85 percent of all the other Hawaiian Islands combined. Mauna Loa is among Earth’s most active volcanoes, having erupted 33 times since its first well-documented historical eruption in 1843. Its most recent eruption was in 1984. This photo was taken from the 13, 796 foot Summit of Mauna Kea.

Look Out !765 viewsTaken 4/6/06
While driving along the Saddle Road that goes between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, my Brother and I encountered this warning sign. We had read about the Military Base located in the area and the possibility of encountering Military Vehicles or Aircraft, but seeing this sign added a little excitement to the trip.

Cumulonimbus1037 viewsI was flying back from Boston and got a chance to see some spectacular weather from the air. We were heading West over Arizona and the hot afternoon Sun was creating some beautiful Cumulonimbus clouds. We were flying at approximately 32,000 Feet and the Thermal Convection was driving these clouds well above us. Taken July 23, 2007.
