Missing summer so much today... Everyone keeps telling me how lucky I am to be at the end of my pregnancy in the winter, but I’m finding it to be pretty uncomfortable. Putting shoes on... sucks! Haha! All the clothes and the cold? I never got that “pregnancy heat” and am freezing as usual all the time. Would love to just throw on a flowy dress, sandals and a summer hat and relax by a lake😭☀️

Those sunset blues though. Looking through some images from spring and I can't believe how far away/foreign it feels! Now, back to Winter!

Erta Ale 🌋
Super HOT, actually boiling. Literally.
Erta Ale means "smoking mountain" in the Afar language & is locally known as #GatewaytoHell.
Bordering #Eritrea, this place is hard work to reach & known to be #DANGEROUS
.
Until a few years ago the trip was considered too risky for tourists. In January 2012, five #tourists were killed, several wounded & others were taken hostage but released a few months later. .
In December 2017 (the day I was supposed to hike 😳) a German tourist was shot dead + his #Ethiopian guide wounded. Both incidents were deliberate attacks by armed #militia group of bandits called the #Afar Revolutionary Democratic Front, with differing motivations. After the most recent attack the Ethiopian Government mobilised another 300 soldiers to the region to capture the bandits & ensure the safety of the next load of tourists visiting #theoddsareinourfavour
.
Couple the #bandit factor with the fact that Erta Ale lies in an extremely remote, inhospitable place (the #DanakilDepression) made the #adventure an even more unforgettable experience.
.
As the sun set & temperatures cooled off, we began the 6 kilometer (3hr) #hike towards the #crater rim, reaching it around midnight (this is after driving 10+ hours in a car across the bumpiest dustiest roads? you’ve ever seen) #ErtaAle was living up to its name, we could see the fumes & #smoke rising from the lava below far off in the distance & as we approached it was BRUTAL.
.
Theres no handrails, no marked footpaths & definitely no rangers blowing whistles if anyone gets too close to the edge. You’re free to stand right on the lip of the crater & watch in awe at the lake of #molten lava just 20 metres below, constantly cracking, bubbling & hissing. It’s #WILD to think that this lava lake is a direct link to the Muma Earths’ core.
.
Erta Ale is one of the only permanent lava #lakes in the world, and the only accessible one at present.
.
As MasterCard says:
- Cost of the 3 day Danakil Volcano Hike $350
- Cost of getting shot by bandits (potentially fatal) $10000000000+
- Witnessing one of Muma #Earths only permanent #lava lakes in the world...
PRICELESS 🙌🏽
