Exploring the worlds volcanoes

I’ve been fascinated with Earth Science for the entirety of my “adult” life.  Earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes and hurricanes have continually piqued my interest, like a King Cobra dancing to a weird little guy playing a flute.

I set off to explore Earth’s Volcanoes with the hopes that I’d get to see some action. Naturally, the horseshoe shaped Ring of Fire was my prime target as it lays claim to 92% of the world’s largest eruptions over the past 11,000 years.  The goal was simple – See something cool before 11,000 years go by.
