You had a wonderfully clear day for the flight - thanks for sharing the photos with us. Andy Burton is a nice guy to do things with.

I have a question: I thought that the active volcano in that area is the Volcan de Fuego. Or does this peak have multiple names?

There is another peak in that area, the Nevado de Colima, but that is just over the border in Jalisco state.

Richard - it has multiple names - this is the active one. Nevado de Colima is the dormant one.

Bournemouth is corect. The Volcán de Colima is also known as the Volcán de Fuego. But the better known Volcan de Fuego is in Guatamala. I think both the Volcan de Colima and Nevado de Colima are in fact in Jalisco. maybe just part of the Volcan.

Wow!!! Impressive photos. Just as I was sending your photos link to my brother I passed through my Yahoo page and noticed this news item about an Alaskan volcano that is about to erupt. Thought it was fitting to share the link: http://news.yahoo.com/...re_us/alaska_volcano
