In response to 143685: Can we drive up Mauna Kea to the summit now?, posted by Linda PC on Tuesday, 17 December 2019, at 10:44 a.m.

Nope. Sadly, the protesters continue to illegally block access.

By all means, visit the encampment. And while you're there, ask about the history of the battle at Kuamo'o, 200 years ago this month (before the missionaries arrived), and what King Kalakaua thought about astronomy and observatories.

Please, know that I have no argument with, and welcome/encourage civil discussion regarding sovereignty, the illegal overthrow, ongoing mismanagement of OHA funds, and people dying on waitlist for Hawaiian homestead lands, to name a few serious injustices.
I just don't see how preventing 21st century wayfaring perpetuates righteousness.

And -- even if you could drive to the summit, please don't. Take a tour instead. That road is not optimal for drivers who are not used to windy, rocky, unpaved, steep roads with limited oxygen, and we really do want to limit impact to the aina. Be safe! Malama ko aloha.
