No particular hazards - good to go
the plan is to walk half (to the highest point) and then back
Mount Ngauruhoe / Mount Doom behind the clouds
they were emptying the toilets... didn't smell nice, so better pass fast!
No, we didn't turn back.
in case of pyroclastic flows better stay out of valleys. Great advice.
crossing the south crater
Mount Doom still behind clouds
catching a glimpse at the top of Mount Doom!
Mount Doom again...
...and hidden again
you can see the top!
...made it to the highest point of the crossing!
the red crater
south crater from above
back down was difficult
