From Pompeii, we decided to head up to the top of the mountain that had caused so much damage. I guess we could say that we climbed it, but by the time the shuttle bus wound up the roads and dropped us off in the parking lot the walk up was a brief one. The mountain was a bit bashful and kept itself hidden most of the time. The occasional glimpse across the crater or to a higher peak kept us looking for more.
|Lots of tourists wind their way of these slopes.|

|Woohoo! 30 seconds of blue skies.|
