Picture of a rental jeep on Puu Kanakaleonui in 11/2007

The picture below has an EXIF time stamp of 11/29/07 6:28pm.
It is located at this website.
Since the owner of that website lives in San Diego, California I am guessing that the correct time would be 3:28pm Hawaii time.
Besides the jeep on the puu, the picture also shows other off-road activity.
