Jump Into the Fire
Jumping for joy near the top of Volcan Pacaya after a lengthy climb in the dusk light. Pacaya is an active volcano close to Guatemala City and had been grumbling recently, so this was as close as we could get to the crater. Steam vents, a desolate landscape of hardened lava, stellar views of the neighbouring volcanoes and a stunning sunset all made the climb up a worthy trek. Try as we could though, the dog just wouldn’t jump for my camera.
