The clouds part and the blue sky reveals a treasure at 10,000 feet. Take a glimpse inside the largest active volcano in the world. Po'as Volcano's majestic stratospheric birth grounds it sternly at 2,700 meters above sea level. Its a rare and exhilarating moment that we are allowed to view God's perfection from this perspective. Its amazing to allow your eyes to seep deep inside the sulferic green acidic lagooon which leads into the cracks to feed the hot rock producing steam. Po'as Volcano is peaceful at this moment. Yet, isn't it incredible how beauty can change with tremdous force.

Location: Province Of Alajuela, Costa Rica
