We'll have to wait and see if this storm, like many others, will weaken and dissipate before it gets this far south, but today was a clear day in Kona. The photo above was shot early this morning - the top of Hualalai from Keauhou. The semi-panorama below shows in the foreground the parking lot at the Kaloko-Honokohau visitor center, with Hualalai and Mauna Loa (right) in the background. Hualalai, let me remind you, is only the third highest peak on this island, but it's higher than anything in North America east of the Rockies. Click for larger view.
