Ascent Trip Report

Drove Rental Jeep from Hilo to the top, avoiding the invisible cows. Short hike to absolute top. Annoying little insects at the very top that I found out later only exist right there. Stunningly beautiful, but the absolute silence is almost mind boggling. I hope I can return someday.
