Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious - Stephen Hawking
I am always looking up, and always wanting to go higher and higher. This peak was the highest I reached so far. At 13000 feet, there's about 40% less oxygen, that's why we stopped at the Mauna kea visitor center at 2,800 meters altitude (9,200 feet) to acclimatize.
In fact, Mauna Kea stands at 4,207 m (13,802 ft) above sea level, and this peak is the highest point in the state of Hawaii.
Much of the mountain is under water; when measured from its oceanic base, Mauna Kea is over 10,000 m (33,000 ft) tall.
