Geology Pictures of the Week(s), March 4-17, 2007: A Crack in Stromboli and a Norwegian Waterfall
Stromboli Online: Effusive Eruption 2007 ^ | March 2007 | Various

Stromboli had a fairly powerful eruption on February 27, and this apparently breached the crater. A lava flow reached the sea. Tourist access to Stromboli is restricted. Below the image is a link to Volcano Discovery's Volcanoes of Italy page describing recent events.

Did you have a nice vacation? Go anyplace scenic?

I should like to go to Norway someday. They're not so Anti-American as other places and I hear they have lovely lakes.
