Furstly, there are lots and lots of forest wildfires in almost all of the Northern California counties. We were not in danger, but you could see and smell the smoke in the air efurrywhere. It makes both the Moon and the Sun furry orange. Mama tried to get the super orange Sun early this morning, but the piccie does not do it justice:

Then we went to a less dry area to check out the volcanic rocks. Did you know we were hiking on a volcano!?!
