Weekly Volcano #17: Piton de la Fournaise, Reunion Island

Piton was active in August 1998 when I visited.  Unlike security at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, people were free to wander inside the crater as long as lava flows were erupting in a passive manner.
A few tourists did get 'gassed' though.
