GREAT DAY IN THE MORNING



In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. — Psalm 5:3


What a great morning this morning. I was at Masters 101 when the sun broke over Hualalai volcano. Not very much vog today so the sun was bright and warm. After Masters 101 I was out on the bike on Queen K and the mountains looked awesome. Hualalai, Mauna Kea, the Kohala mountains and even Maui were visible. It was great and such a change from the usual voggy days we've been having. For those who don't know, vog is volcanic fog and since the volcano had its "other" eruption last year we've been inundated with vog nearly everyday.


Maui looms in the distance. When are they going to build a bridge from here to there???


Mauna Kea is the highest point in the state at 13,796 feet. It's also the tallest mountain in the world when measured from the base to the summit, since its base is located on the sea floor about 19,000 feet beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean, bringing its total height to about 33,000 feet. — wikipedia
