We had a nice drive up there. We saw the lava stone fields. It's a dramatic type of landscape.

The drive was fantastic! It was beautiful and a little bit foggy so it added to the drama of the scenery. Along the drive on the mountain we came across a shrine (I think that's the appropriate name for it) so we stopped and checked it out. It was very well taken care of. We picked up some lava rocks and pine cones. I plan on making some Christmas decorations with the pine cones.
We stopped and walked around a crater. What was super fun about that was that we ran into Gavin's teacher! How fun to say that you ran into your teacher on a volcano!
The landscape is unbelievable.
