Volcano Sight

While traveling to San Juan, Costa Rica I saw a fascinating volcano called Irazu Volcano. This volcano has a delightful spark to it; its height compares to the Sears Tower in Chicago making it more daunting to look at. Our tour guide told us this volcano has been dominant for over a decade dating back to 1994. This was an astonishing sight to see because the only Volcano’s I’ve seen have been in pictures and movies.
