Mount Everest gets all the credit, but Hawaii’s Mauna Kea (an idle volcano that’s been around for, you know, a million years) is technically the world’s tallest mountain. Technically. While it stands 13,800ft above sea level, more than two thirds of the hill is actually submerged underwater, which brings the total height to 33,136ft.
Americans hoping to escape winter weather can enjoy a tropical Christmas in Hawaii or Florida at places such as Honolulu, Lahaina, Waikiki and Key West.
There’s a snowboarder working on a trick so difficult that if the feat is pulled off in a competition, it just may be game over for everyone else.
