Mauna Kea - above the clouds



Simply awesome! Having written a whole dissertation about this telescope, checking out the Keck with a technician was just amazing.  The views from above the clouds up here are just unreal.  However missioning up from sea level to 13700' then hiking around on the summit for several hours is a real recipe for some brutal altitude sickness. Head hurts just thinking of it!!!

It was cool. The altitude sickness was not so cool!
