At 13200 feet elevation, the Mauna Kea Trail comes to a crest, just west of Pu'u Hau Kea. At this point, hikers get their first views of the Mauna Kea Telescopes. From left to right, the lower row of telescopes is Submillimeter Array (barely visible), James Clerk Maxwell Telescope, and the Cal Tech 10.4-m Submillimeter telescope. From left to right, the top row of telescopes is: Subaru, Keck, and Canada-France-Hawaii.
