First Light: Etna, Sicily

After posting yesterdays blog post in the evening, just before hitting the sleeves, we got aware of the red lava flow, visible from our place of stay at Taormina, some 30 km in the distance. What a sight – First Light ;). Right now, we are sitting in the lobby at the Refugio Sapienza, Etna, 1980 m a.s.l. This morning we had some 17°C and sunshine, tonight we got 1°C and light snowfall…we might make it to the top by tomorrow, some 3300 m a.s.l. Enjoy!
