Mount Kohala, Big Island, Hawaii

Mount Kohala is one of five volcanoes on the Big Island. It is the oldest volcano on Hawaii and it is extinct. This photo shows how dramatically climate can change on the Big Island depending on your location. The brown in the foreground is desert. The green higher on the mountain is grassland. The clouds show how the mountains can block and contain precipitation. Above the mountain, it is a clear day with blue skies.
