Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

Mauna Kea at Sunrise” was snapped from atop Mauna Loa, during a trek to Mokuʻāweoweo. To the right of the photo, where the sun is casting its rosy morning glow, is Hilo. The sun rises here at the easternmost point of Hawaiʻi, at Kumukahi. At this moment in time, the east is already bright, while Kona and the rest of the archipelago, to the west, are enjoying the last few moments of darkness.

  1. Thank you for stopping by my blog. My granddaughter’s name is Kainoa. :-). My husband is from Oahu and I lived there for 25 years . . . we now live in Oregon. Will be back next month to greet a new grandchild.

    • Aww! When I was growing up, Kainoa was common for boys, so it’s always great to hear of girls bearing the name. It seems a lot of former Hawai’i residents now live in Oregon. I’ve never been, but it sounds like I should make the trek. Thanks for stopping by and congratulations on your new grandchild! Aloha!

    • It really was cold that morning, but the breathtaking view made me forget about the temperature.
