We had been walking since sunrise and the sunset approached. Our feet were sore from 16 miles of tread. But as we came closer to home we couldn't resist the pull of the mountain, it called to us. As we scaled the entrance it became clear it wasn't the peak, but the center that was the attraction. We had stumbled upon an errrupted volcano. It's time of excitement was many years past, it was now filled with grazing cattle.
No amount of miles cound've drained our energy to the point of avoiding the beauty of that place.
