Near the summit of Mauna Kea on Hawaii's Big Island stands the Canada–France–Hawaii Telescope (CFHT), seen on the left. Altitude 13,793 feet. The tallest mountain in the contiguous 48 states is Mt. Whitney in California at 14,505 feet. Family and I have camped on Whitney at about 8,000 feet. In the middle of a hot summer, the campsite turned cold cold at night. There is snow on Whitney year-round, but not on Mauna Kea! Pele, or Pelehonuamea, is the Hawaiian goddess of fire and volcanoes, rumbling, shaking, and spewing, both destroying and creating land.
I'd rank Hawaiian as the third-most beautiful sounding language. Two grandnephews are named Lalamaika'i and Kuikamaoli. Pronounce every vowel and say them the way you would with Romance languages, yet mai is a diphthong. The accent is on the penultimate syllable. Keep trying to speak it, as I did, and you will get it right.
