Surrounding this mountain are three separate small town. This mountain is actually an active volcano. Depending on where you view the mountain the aspect, view and emotion of that view changes. I was recommended a spot by the locals. This photo was taken from the edge of a forest on the north of the mountain. Here you can see horses running in the fields with the mountain as a backdrop. Part of the fun of a trip in this area is talking with the locals and getting great hints for places like this.
