Aloha From Mauna Kea's Summit 2012 Aloha Joe Style

Aloha Joe on Mauna Kea's Summit!

Today I had the distinct privilege and honor

to summit the tallest mountain in the world.

It is known as Mauna Kea

and is on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The summit is 13,796 feet above sea level.

From the base of the mountain to the top is 33,500 feet, 

making it three times as tall as Mount Everest.

There are now thirteen telescopes on Mauna Kea

operated by eleven different countries.
