Red (ant) Hill / by Nasuna Stuart-Ulin

Red (ant) Hill This is another stitched panorama from my hike up Mauna Loa, overlooking Red Hill cabin. It's the first stop after a steady climb to 10,035 feet. It had been a long day, but Pele (the ancient Hawaiian volcano goddess) rewarded us with stunning views of Mauna Kea and a cozy cabin nestled in iron-saturated rock.

To the left you can see what looks like the ocean, but what is actually the cloud-line. When the wind dropped, I'd never heard silence so loud.
