McSwatchy versus The Volcano

Dear Swatchy,

Our last expotition was to Arenal, one of the world's most active volcanoes.

It's a long trip to get there from the beach, so we stayed overnight at another hacienda.

Here I am with my friend Maggie on the grounds of the hacienda.

Can you see the hummingbird in this picture?

You can go hiking all around the volcano, which is pretty cool. But it is soooooo hot! Everyone had to drink lots and lots of water. There's a big warning sign posted near the trail:
That's because the volcano is so active. The ground rumbles and sometimes, rocks come flying down. There is also lava flow, which cools into rocks.

If it were me versus the volcano, the volcano would definitely win!

Love, McSwatchy
