Mauna Loa Snowcap

To many, hearing about a ‘snowcap’ in Hawaii makes them think of tasty, shaved-ice treats. A lot of people don’t know that the Big Island’s two largest volcanoes regularly receive snow in the winter.

This picture from the summit of Mauna Loa shows the observation station in the foreground and Mauna Kea in the background against clear blue skies.

So bundle up if you’re on island and headed above 9,000 feet in the cold season.
