Well the pictures are not as dramatic as the title but I did stand on the lava with my boots smoking but I could not bring myself to put my gitzo tripod on the newly formed rock that was smoking hot. And I did not want to stand with my favorite hiking boots for too long.
So here are the less exciting pictures. I went on a guided hike with seelava. They take you past the barricade and hike over very rough terrain to the lava. The hike started at 5:30 am but some of the others in the group were a bit slow so we did not get there with good light. It was about an 1.5 hours of hiking to the lava.
It was cool to stand on the lava and look through the cracks at glowing red/yellow beneath my feet.
Comments and feedback are appreciated. Scott
