“I’d say, ‘Trane, man, why are you doing that, beating on your chest and howling in the microphone?’. He’d say, ‘Man, I can’t find anything else to play on the horn.’ He exhausted the saxophone. He couldn’t find nothing else to play… he ran out of horn”

Mauna Kea

n

Maune Kea is one of the two volcanoes on the Big Island, the one with all the observatories on top of it.

We passed through the clouds on the way up. This was the view down from the visitors center at ~9000 feet where we stopped to acclimatize.


After anotherr few steep miles we were at the top driving between the large telescope structures.


​we decided to walk down to lake waiau 

And setting aside any preconceptions about sacredness we found ourselves in a sacred place


And gifted with an abundance of beauty and connection we started our way back to the car
