Volcano Walk

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:07 pm

With Maria in Brisbane and I’ll be joining her later this week thought was time to put up one last post before I go on holidays. Few weeks ago I joined some others in walking up the local volcano – Tavurvur. Ref http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tavurvur

Its been dormant for the last 15 months and seems to only emit sulphur fumes. Few of us set off around 6 in the morning to beat the heat.

Setting Out

On the way up walked past some sulphur pools with steam and boiling water bubbling up.

It was a very lunar like landscape.

And another photo on the way.

Here you can see the path up the volcano that we are taking.

But must admit it was too much for me, I just had to sit and rest.

Resting

But one day I’ll give it another go.
