I missed this one. I was in the hospital recovering from surgery. Cody took this photo.

It is amazing to live so close to something so magnificent. Mount Etna is the most active volcanoes in all of Europe. We are safe though. Throughout history the lava has only destroyed a few towns and they were far, far from here. She is ancient. There are Greek myths surrounding her.
Ethan has camped and hiked there. He thinks it's pretty cool to say that his Boy Scout troop has camped on an active volcano.
In the winter you can drive up there and snow-shoe, sled, snowboard and ski some. We haven't been up there yet. May be next winter when I'm stronger. I'm sure I'll have many, many more photos and stories of Mount Etna during our time here in Sicily.
