Mt. Etna Volcano

The Mt. Etna volcano in eastern Sicily is one of the most active volcanoes on Earth. It erupts nearly every year, usually from one or more of its four summit craters named Voragine (VOR), Northeast Crater (NEC), Bocca Nuova (BN) and Southeast Crater (SEC). Mount Etna is one of the largest (11,000 feet & 3,350 meters in height) most active continental volcanoes in the world and is arguably the dominant landscape feature in Southern Italy. Although Etna has had a large number of eruptions over the past couple of years, recordings of its eruptions date back to 1500, and it has since erupted 200 times.

Although there was no explosion, the climb up to the summit was incredibly worth it.
