Great photos...minus the lava...I'm slightly terrified of volcanoes. It's a phobia. I'm WAY better than I used to be though, but still...give me an earthquake or a hurricane any day. (well, please don't, but I'd prefer those over a volcanic eruption)

Angela said...

Oh my gosh, those are amazing! Lucky, lucky!

Pamela said...

the lava hole freaked me out.
Hey.. did you notice how your feet were straddling the helicopter pads.
was that before or after you got back on the ground?
