My favourite posts of the last year are probably the reports I filed while observing on Mauna Kea. From the emails, they were among your favourites too, so I’ve been particularly remiss in not linking to Rob’s experiences, both good and less good, as he got (and then recovered from) a nasty bout of altitude sickness.
It’s difficult to describe the emotions associated with observing and so, instead of waffling on, I present Hotel Mauna Kea. Not my work, but genius all the same.
