We had planned a day trip for Saturday but at the last minute got a call that some missionary friends would be passing through our area and we ended up spending Saturday morning visiting with them instead. It's hard to pass up fellowship time with other North Americans! After lunch we loaded up and set out on the hour drive to the volcano. You have two options to get there. 1) You can drive a shorter distance, park your car, and hike up the volcano. 2) You can drive a little farther and actually get all the way to the top with just a short hike. I will always choose option 2. We hike enough for ministry. I don't necessarily want to hike on my free time, ha.

It's just a short hike up that hill and you are at the lake.
the water was cold!

It ended up being a fun outing for our family so we were glad it worked out for us to go. The day got late so we didn't have time to hike to the lookout but will do that on another visit. The boys had such a great time I feel like it won't be long until we return again just to hang out and let them play.
