Ascent Trip Report

Made a pit stop in Kona to climb Mauna Kea before flying out to Kauai for a wedding. Rented a car and drove to the top before hiking the last 1/4 mile. The road has a fair amount of washboard about halfway up the mountain but nothing my Toyota Camry rental couldn't handle. Beautiful views across the Mars-like landscape and out over the blanket of clouds.
