Mount Aso Spilling Ashes

Mount Aso spilling ashes from far

The University of Manchester recently released a list of the world's 10 most dangerous volcanoes. While going through the list, I noticed Mount Aso in Japan was ranked 4th. This reminded me of my visit in December 2014, where I witnessed Mount Aso spilling ashes and my bus had to be diverted. The photo in this post was taken from my bus while it was being diverted. I thought it would be interesting to share my experience and my apologies for the reflection from the bus windows.

That's an awesome photo Alex. Looking at your header picture you remind me very much of a friend named Bikash who I work with.

I was flying through the Pacific Northwest when Mount St. Helens had a follow-up eruption. Even that was pretty exciting. - Margy

That's really some sky. I followed the link to the 10 most dangerous and was relieved that Seattle's Mt. Rainier was not on the list. They do say it could go at any time, however. Hope I never see it!
