July 3, 2010 - Mauna Loa Strip Road (Test)

Posted Sunday 4th July 2010 at 12:54 by bkrownd
Some of my outings are of a less sensitive nature than others, and I'm kicking around the idea of having some of my journal entries password protected and others public access. I'm not sure if I can link to an unprotected subgallery inside my password protected journal gallery, so I'm testing it out with a link to today's outing:

It works for me, anyway.

Unfortunately, I've had to take my galleries offline for a few months and will have to discontinue the journal due to a sharp increase in potentially hostile visitors to my PBASE site.

Change of Address Form

I'm in the process of moving my adventure journal to my PBASE account, which I've been meaning to do for a while. It is still a work in progress since I don't have any past experience with CSS. Unfortunately this is also a difficult time for PBASE, which can be a bit loopy some days.

The address is:

About a month ago I noticed an abundance of active and vocal 'apapane at Halepohaku (visitor center and dorm complex on the South slope of Mauna Kea) as the mamane bloom broke out. Since then their numbers have steadily declined until only a quiet handful remain, and even the year-around resident 'amakihi numbers are a bit lower. There is still bloom on a lot of trees, but perhaps the nectar has run low, and the 'ohi'a bloom on the Saddle is providing competition. Unfortunately I didn't get out...

Unfortunately I wasted a lot of this morning covering up my broken car window, and some other associated nonsense. I only got a half day out. I decided to just explore a new area off of Army Road makai in Pu'u Maka'ala NAR.

I did point counts throughout the day. Average counts were about 4 'apapane, 3 Japanese white-eye, 2 'oma'o and 1 'elepaio. The nutmeg mannikins were still hanging around a couple of the parking areas where the alien grasses are producing seed. I heard...
