29/365: Shinmoedake

January 29th, 2011 in Daily

Well I finally made it up to see the eruption of Shinmoedake in person. Now I know I need to return at night, even if the activity has died down. Kirishima gets pretty cold even during the day… time to layer up.

Seismometers placed in various locations around the exclusion zone

In the foreground you can see part of the hot-springs resort area situated at the base of the Kirishima range.

Weather permitting, more to follow tomorrow and this week.
