13,803' from surf level

Mauna Kea Observatory / Hawaii
Should you find yourself on Saddle Road crossing the Big Island in Hawaii, be sure to drive up to the peak of Mauna Kea. Spectacular moonscape views above the clouds. Besides the giant golfball space observatories, there's a rare permafrost lake to explore (assuming that you aren't too winded from the altitude.) You can just coast all the way back down to the ocean - which comes in handy if you forget to fully gas up before the journey.
