Volcano Hike on Ambrym

Liz wrote about the volcano hike here and Johnathan wrote about it here. And now, finally, some more pictures.

It was a good work out after eight months in atolls - about eight hours of hiking and not a lot of flat ground
The ash plain was a nice break when we got to it.
The vibrant flowers were a pleasant surprise on the ash plain.

No more ash plain.  Heading up the ridge with my little helper.

Taking a break - almost there
Don't follow Johnathan's hat - looking 400 m down to the lava.

Lava !

Lunch break - hold onto your children !
Post hike feast on Honey. Medicinal wine for the parents ...
Watching the volcano from the anchorage in Epi.  At night you could see it glow.
