I meant to post this way back in September after my latest field visit to Mount Etna, but never got round to it/forgot! A couple of photos showing how quickly the weather can change on Etna. The day before it was very cold but no signs of snow and woke up to this the next morning. Below is the Pizzi Deneri volcano observatory where I was lucky enough to stay for a week during September.
Needless to say not a lot of work got done on this day and a hasty retreat back down the flanks was made (to where it was nice and warm!). This serves to demonstrate that there are more hazards when working on a volcano than just the volcano itself!
