"When we got to the eruption it didn’t seem real, the orange-red contrasted against the lack of color surrounding it. I could hear it growl and feel the vibrations. It was strange to look at something so hot it could swallow up our four-wheeled-drive vehicle, yet feel so cold while watching it. I guess I somehow thought that I would feel the heat from the lava, even from a distance."
