How many times can you say WOW? What an awesome sight to see the sunset atop Mauna Kea. The drive up to the summit is best done with a four wheel drive vehicle. I believe it may be jeep heaven up there! I took many, many, many photos from different vantage points and sun setting lights. We wondered about the weather, but it was clear (a few clouds) and crisp at the summit...perfect for sunset. We stopped at the visitor center at 9000 ft to get acclimated to the altitude. No problems! We took water and sandwiches to eat at the summit whilst we waited for sunset. We arrived about an hour before sunset and it was interesting to walk around up there. Be sure to dress warmly. We wore jeans, shoes, socks, sweatshirts, light windbreaker jacket. Wear a hat and gloves if you have them. Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!
