A Year In The Life of Beautiful Mauna Kea

What started out as a school project for a class at Palamanui has become part of my morning routine. Understanding the importance of the maunas on our beautiful island was just a small part of the course of study in the Stewardship class that I took last Fall. My teacher Pua Lincoln would talk about Mauna Kea, and even though I could see it from my backyard, I honestly never really looked at it other than to acknowledge that it was there.  As I sat and listened in class, I began to realize just how important this majestic mauna is to our island and to the people of Hawai’i.

I decided as part of my final project I would take a picture every day for the entire semester and present it to my class. One of the biggest lessons that I learned from this experience is that you should never take for granted something that could literally be right in your own backyard. To this day, I still take a picture and it reminds me to honor this beautiful place I call home. I hope you enjoy this year in the life of Mauna Kea video I have put together.
