Concurring Vulcano

Well the day has come and Ed and I are preparing for our ascent of Vulcano.

Vulcano is 501 mtrs high and an active volcano. We were well prepared with climbing boots and back packs containing, food, 2 ltrs of water and some extra wind chill clothing. The clothing proved unnecessary as at 501 mtrs its still pretty hot up there. Bill dropped us off via tender at a small tender pontoon and Ed and I set off.

The walk is tough, but easily manageable and many children and elderly people were seen of the way. We arrived at the crater rim within an hour, had a rest and then proceeded to the summit and a walk around the entire crater rim. A fantastic experience looking down into the crater and walking through spurting sulphur clouds, which bubbled and spurted sulphur to the surface.

Fantstic views and well worth the effort.
