There are quite a few black sand beaches in Hawaii, but this was by far the most beautiful, it was also empty from the crowds.

Snorkeling in Molokini

Snorkel at Molokini was superb! The water was so clear one could see 25 feet down. Fishes were patiently waiting for us and posed to our photos with big smiles (not the fish in the photo).

Turtle Town

Guarded by ancient lava fingers, Turtle Town in Maui was supposed to be, well, a town full of turtles. I only managed to see three of them, but this one was gigantic.

Mauna Kea Observatories

Sunset at Mauna Kea summit with the Gemini and UH 2.2 meter telescopes in the foreground. At more than 13,796 feet (4,200 m) it was freezing, but worth it. If you have the opportunity (and a 4×4) to see the sunset at Mauna Kea, don’t miss it.
Mauna Kea holds 13 telescopes including the largest in the world.
