Etna

I got up early Sunday morning for some pix of Etna, on whose northeastern slopes we are parked. It had clouded up by mid-morning every other day we have been here, so I figured this was my big chance.

So there it is, from our campground more or less















Closer-up, you can see a plume from one of its four summit
craters
















Closer-up still















On down the road to Siracusa; I was getting concerned
about the black river of lava on the left there
















But the barista at the service area assured me there was no
cause for alarm; Sicilian coffee is every bit as good as
Naples'...the best
