Closed for 16 months due to volcanic activity and subsequent renovation, the Poas Volcano National Park reopened this Wednesday, August 29th.

After a reduction in the frequency of their flights, following the eruptive break of Kilauea, followed by bad conditions due to hurricane Lane, here are recent photos of Mick Kalber and Bruce Omori.
The cone on the fissure 8 and the different other fissures emit a lot of steam, result of the humidity in the soil still hot after the heavy rains.
No steam or laze emissions on the coast, where the lava flows have stopped.
Beautiful stretches of black sand were formed during this time near Kapoho lighthouse and Pohoiki Bay.
The creation of the island and its expansion could be lived live thanks to the image of this Top team, and the infos of the HVO-USGS.
