What people are saying:

This volcano is actually quite unpopular and not well-known, and the scenery of the entire volcano is quite ordinary. They were all rocks, but many people thought they were going to see this volcano, but it was actually the observatory near this volcano.

    Maura Kea

    We tried to go up to the snow on Maura Kea. There was a tent city of protesters at the turn off to the mountain but they did not bother us. We were able to get up the visitors center, but not the last...
