“We are rare and precious because we are alive…

We are privileged to live, to influence and control our future. We have an obligation to fight for that life, to struggle not just for ourselves, but for all those creatures that came before us, and to whom we are beholden, and for all those who, if we are wise enough, will come after us.”  

~Carl Sagan

Want to explore the power and wonders of our volcanic earth? I took this picture at the Arenal Volcano, in Costa Rica. Every time I have been here it has been different. I have heard the earth rumble from below, I have seen lava shoot from the top, and lava tumble down the side. Whether it has been foggy or sunny, this volcanic wonder surrounded by hot springs is a place on Earth to be sure to see yourself.
