Fabulous day! Even got some sunshine! Lots! Sitting waiting for it to go dark, to see volcano.
Walked across a hardened lava lake this morning. You walk down through the rainforest and drop onto the floor of the crater. It's quite surreal! (Did I mention Jurassic Park was filmed here?)
There are steam vents rising all around you and you are walking across what seems like cinders, but is solidified lava bombs that were thrown out of the crater when it erupted. There are huge cracks and fissures, some of which are quite deep. Unfortunately, at the end of the hike, you've got to climb 400ft out of the crater, which is no joke, in the heat and humidity of a rainforest. Though, looking at the vegetation and flowers makes up for it.
