Good morning and happy Valentines Day! (I wonder what Vinny-Volcano will be doing to celebrate)
The more I explore this volcano virtually, the more I want to explore it in reality. That impressive but tall little island in the foreground isn’t represented at all by the 3D-rendering in Google-Earth, but the photos are impressive. That “island” is actually a lava plug or spine that is the surviving remnant of the original volcano that stood on that location about the time the first homo-sapiens were appearing in Africa. Volcanic activity has since moved away toward the present-day mountain in the background.
First one to find me gets seven points.
Also, tomorrow’s update miiiiight be a little later than usual. I have a date. 🙂 (but not with Vinny-Volcano)
