Reventador volcano

Hiking down from our deployment site back to the refugio, and thence through the jungle back to the observatory. This is a stark example of the devastation that the volcano can cause: this entire area was densely vegetated prior to the 2002 eruption, which levelled the area with a pyroclastic flow. In the distance some bare trees are seen which were burnt by the heat of the flow.
