Standing on the crater floor looking south a mile from camp prior to wind exceeding 70 mph. with rain, sleet and blowing pumice.
Wind exceeding 70 mph with tent being buffeted by wind, rain, sleet and pumice. My tent was in a sheltered area between fingers of lava near Surprise Lake. Some damage to rainfly and parts of my camp stove were blown up to 200 yards from the tent's vestibule.
A brief description of Aniakchak Volcano and life within the confines of the volcano. My travels here were entirely on my own, alone in the wilderness.
