Costa Rica

Here is a view of the Arenel volcano, as seen from Main Street in downtown La Fortuna. If you look closely, you can see the smoke coming from the top and steam venting from fissures in the mountain. That sumbitch is more than 10,000 feet tall--- a VERY impressive sight when it is angry.

The post below is ANOTHER very impressive sight that I never saw angry. In fact, it was friendly ALL the time. Stop right here if you're at work. Don't say I didn't warn you.


Ah Arenal....I was there some years ago with the Green Tortoise bunch. we camped nearby, spent an afternoon and evening at a posh hot springs resort near Arenal. As I was soaking in the outdoor pool, the volcano cut loose with a mighty eruption, flames, thunder, boulders flying up. what a sight!
