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.
