I love volcanoes. And their (not entirely) subtle reminder to us all that this Earth is an active, changing world that would carry on with its business whether humans were present to observe them or not.

The picture above was taken from the ISS of the cloud draped volcanoes Carlisle, Cleveland, Herbert, and Tana in Alaska's Aleutian chain.
