I am here..just a little bit before dawn in this incredible caldera. It almost feels like being in a canyon with such steep sides. Right now I am at 5,720 feet..which is short of this volcano’s highest point by 3,500 feet.
Also, while this is no Mauna Loa, the geographical area this volcano occupies contains few cities to pollute the dark skies with light, nor is there lots of manufacturing to pollute the air.
Also, for the first person who finds me..in addition to the obvious reward of finding me, there will be a small prize of some sort (to be announced)
