In a (wet and impenetrable) forest in the Saddle between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. A mile or so from the highway just off a jeep track.

No plans. Spontaneity rules.

[edit] Expedition

Drove up the Saddle road through the usual east Hawaii drizzle. A nice turnout from the highway led to a jeep track leading off through a (wet) forest growing over an old 'a'a field. Lots of bird calls. Followed the the track until the GPS showed I was only 40 yards away. Tried bushwhacking to get a bit closer but gave up after only 10 yards or so. The waist high brush obscured the underlying lava boulders, making footing treacherous. And did I say wet? The GPS showed I was there, if you round off to 1 arcsec.
