Over at Mountain Beltway Callan Bentley has posted some great images of Pacaya, one of the most active volcanoes of Guatemala. A friend of his climbed the volcano (she didn’t go right to the top, ‘just high enough to get up close and personal with some lava’) and took pictures on the way – the climb being facilitated by still-warm ‘lava stairs’. The results can be seen on Callan’s blog: Pacaya Volcano, Guatemala. There is also a link to more pictures at Flickr. Strongly recommended for all lovers of lava.
