Mt Tavurvur

This is our local active volcano Mt Tavurvur. Luckily it doesn't always look like this and at the moment is fairly quiet. In 1994 however, it and Mt Vulcan erupted simultaneously and devastated most of Rabaul town, which at that time was one of the most beautiful spots in the Pacific. Will post more photos another day of what is left of the town.
