Dec. 21 Barb and Rich Pederson of Los Alamitos have been to the Big Island many times. On a December 2006 visit, they took a trip to the top of Mauna Kea. It was a nine-hour tour in an eight-passenger van, up the Saddle Road. They reached the summit near sunset and were able to walk around outside the observatories. There was snow on the ground and the temperature was 24 degrees. Rich took this picture with their Canon S-100 digital camera. "It was a long trip but definitely worth it," Barb says.
