This is one of the few ways to get away from the ocean.  Saddle road runs across Hawaii between the volcanic mountains of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.  It is a rugged volcanic landscape.  At the peak of Mauna Kea there are several large research telescopes.  The visitor’s center that is partway up the mountain has a collection of smaller telescopes for public stargazing sessions.
