"In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying."--Bertrand Russell

Volcano Steam Plume - visible for miles
We could see this volcano steam plume miles away. This shot was taken from about a half mile back. It doesn't look that far, but when you're hiking across the four year old lava field, it's a tough half mile that seems like more. We heard that the lave is spectacular at night, but I'm sure the hike with a flashlight is a tough one, even if you did it at full moon. The lava rocks are pitch black.
