Under Water Counts!

Measured from base to peak (most of which is under water), Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii is over 33,480 feet tall, making it the tallest mountain on Earth – taller than Mount Everest in Nepal and China.  Mauna Kea is now considered dormant (scientists believe it last erupted 6,000 to 4,000 years ago).

John Adams

“I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in providence, for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.”
