Jun 25th 2010 4:45AM Aloha again Catherine, I still believe that your article is misleading, you claim in your message to me that Denali is the tallest because of its climbing attributes yet your article does not even talk about climbing until the 4th paragraph and then has only 3 sentences about the subject in the rest of the article. I don't believe your article was about climbing but about Denali and your incorrect assertion that it is indeed the tallest mountain on Earth. It is neither highest in elevation nor is it the tallest mountain from its origin. Yes Denali is an impressive mountain but your article as it stands is flawed and you just do not want to admit it. I know that you did mention Mauna Kea but you still chose to keep your misleading title and that was a bad idea. The facts are that Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the World. Scott
Jun 24th 2010 5:18PM So my point was that your article title IS incorrect.
Jun 24th 2010 5:15PM Just because Mauna Kea sits under water is no cause to dismiss it. Do you realize what it took to get to that point from nothing? As a volcano Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa (The Worlds most Massive Mountain) started out from small lava flows building upon each other, it's actually mind blowing when you think about how it built itself up to where it stands today. Compared to Everest that was built with plate tectonics in a much shorter time span and at a much higher plateau. It is like building a sand castle on top of the Empire State Building and saying that you have the highest sand castle in the world. Mt. McKinley was not built in a spectacular fashion such as Mauna Kea either so again I do not think you can just say because it is under water so it does not count. Now as far as climbing, Mauna Kea is a dud because you can drive to the very tip top and it is not a jagged or rugged looking mountain. I will tell you though when it is beautiful is when the snow level drops to 9,000 feet and it is covered in white and you are down at the beach. The ultra blue water, the beach and the the coconuts are swaying and behind it all there sits a spectacular site against a beautiful blue sky. The observatories glisten in the sun along with the bright white snow. How about that same snow covered mountain on a crystal clear night with a full moon so bright that it lights up the snow and the whole sky and you can see everything and it is so bright out you can see shadows as if it were daylight. Mauna Kea is very special.
