Mauna Kea has significance to the Hawaiians as we all know.
We made it to Hawaii courtesy of an inheritance from my grandmother. I'm not terribly religious but am spiritual about a number of things. Upon leaving the summit I really & truly felt my grandmother's presence up there. There was just something I felt that she was communicating she made it to the other side and was in a better place and it was ok to move on.
Alot of people think that all sounds hokie but I felt it up there.
