On the day we went the Volcano this was active and the trails were closed. There was not much to see at the volcano except smoke emerging from the ominous crater. The drive up was nice, the higher the elevation the more barren the landscape became. I was impressed with the safety at the top parking lot as they have everyone park their vehicles backed in, just in case you have to leave in a hurry. Their museum below was one of the few places I found post cards, which I thought were rather over priced. I later mailed and to date none ever arrived. I found the museum more interesting with a very nice view.
