Years ago in Costa Rica, I climbed a small cone volcano at night, Vulcan Arenal which when dormant continuously erupts glowing rock from the summit. My partner at the time and I found our way through the thick jungle at night, and we’re told to climb until we reached a fence that says “peligro” (dangerous). We somehow missed it and sat mesmerized by the astounding light show up above. At one point a boulder the size of a small car landed 50 feet in front of us, split open and hissed hot steam. We then tried to run as gas as we could down the mountain.
