Completion on Mauna Kea

I completed the 50 state highpoints last week on Mauna Kea! We had perfect weather until we reached the final mile, where we encountered very heavy winds. A ranger told us the wind speed was 51MPH at at one of the observatories. It seemed even higher than that on the actual summit but that merely served to add a nice exclamation point to my final state highpoint.

I also completed my State Highpoint Album over on SummitPost.
