THE CRATER IN FLAMME

Yesterday, Friday the 13th was the day we planned the day long visit to The Piton de la Fournaise, The island famous active volcano . Since last week, it has been in eruption and the usual lookout points are not open to the public.

The road to the top rises along older volcanic canyons, now covered by green tropical forests. The lodge at the top sits at 2370 meter high, and is like a lunar landscape, totally barren.

Since we were not allowed access to the crater a group of us walked a 3 hours hike in the forest below.
