After the driver forgetting to pick us up for the volcano trek we re-booked for 7am. As I mentioned previously, Antigua isn’t the warmest place so it was a shock to the system!
Joe and I pulled out our hiking boots and got ready for a day of trekking!
Check out this landscape…
The trek took us from the bottom of the volcano up halfway and then around the back. The previous days trek had proven getting to the top was too difficult as it was thick in smoke. Our guide decided to take us around the back and toward a new crater that had developed and had recently released a stream of lava.
The landscape went from green trees and bushes to black ash within seconds.
The ash was so difficult to walk on and the wind picked up and was blowing down the side of the volcano… We nearly lost a few!
As we got close the the lava it started heating up.
Made our way back with our group
