It was so cool to see the volcano’s crater and all the lava that flowed out. The view from on top was incredible!! Our tour guide, Adam gave us lots of information about volcanos and sightseeing tips too. Adam witnessed the eruption and showed us his incredible photos and videos which have given him recognition. The hike was not too strenuous and there was ample time for photos. Highly recommend!!
