Supplemental: Observatory Trail to Mauna Loa Summit
Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park
Note: If you came to this page looking for the general narrative of our climb up Mauna Loa via the Observatory Trail, then you have come to the wrong place. You should go here instead.

This page serves as a repository for supplemental pictures of our climb up Mauna Loa. Because the narrative description of the climb is "trail guide"-ish enough, I have not bothered to write any further information regarding the trail here. Note that nearly all of the images shown on these pages are not in the general narrative (and hence are shown with a special color around them).
