The biggest mountain

January 18, 2014 - Harry Eagar
Maui Nui is the biggest mountain in the world. 93% of it is underwater. It has several dry peaks, of which Haleakala is the highest. This is a picture of Haleakala this morning from my front yard, taken with an Olloclip fisheye attachment to an iPhone.

Since my house is about 1,500 feet above sea level, this represents maybe 2% or so of the whole mountain.

The Big Island and Maui are sinking under the weight of volcanoes. The seafloor is stiff enough that it acts as a seesaw, with Kauai lifting. Oahu is just about at the fulcrum and barely affected.

But,yes, all real estate in Hawaii is ultimately oceanfront.
