In December 2008 I taught 3 WordPress courses over a weekend as part of the University of Hawai’i at Manoa Pacific New Media Outreach program. One day on my trip I visited Mauna Kea and the observatories, unaware of controversies around use of the indigenous land.

Mauna Kea visit — our small tour bus.
Mauna Kea visit  — barren land along the road to the top.
Mauna Kea visit — 3 of the observatories.
Mauna Kea visit  — the closed dome of an observatory.
Mauna Kea visit  — an enormous telescope inside an opened dome.
Mauna Kea visit  — me at the top of the mountain.
