Daily Photo

In December 2010 we travelled to Indonesia to climb some volcanoes.  What someone neglected to tell me was that Mt Bromo, where we were going, had been erupting for days, even weeks, before we arrived.

I was less than impressed but on the positive side, I didn’t have to hike up the side of the volcano because no-one was allowed that close to it.

Yes people, I have seen and hiked on a real live erupting volcano.  Yasur on Tanna Island in Vanuatu.

This is from the Organ Pipes National Park in Victoria.  Note this was NOT taken with my new camera, but it’s still a nice photo.

Yasur Volcano, on Tanna Island in Vanuatu.  Not my idea of a good time but the photos we got were stunning.  I don’t know anyone else who has seen a real live erupting volcano!
