    This is the next river crossing we hit just before dark ... No choice but to cross over during the dark .... It was not too far a ride but in total darkness, it was a little spooky ....

    Our campsite ... That water was crystal clear, warm, and filled with star fish... Must have been tens of thousands or more of them out there ....

    Here is a bigger starfish that is off shore a little farther ... He's sitting in about 10" of water also... I probably saw about 20 or more of this size ....

    Inside the lahar ... Pretty gnarly and dry ... we start the push up the volcano .. too bad we arrived late in the day ... That is about a 25' high cooled lava flow
