Soufrière Volcano

On the first Sunday of the trip we decided to climb up to the Soufrière volcano. I had visited there few times before but for Mari it was the first time ever on a volcano.

We had luck as there were almost no cloud at the peak. That's not often the case. On my previous visit the peak was covered by clouds and I could not see all the great things that we saw this time.

Climbing was relatively easy but maybe we should have asked for a car ride to the beginning of the track. Now we had quite a lot of road to climb, too. On our way back some other climbers gave us a ride down.
