What to Pack

View from the top

This one is too easy not to knock out on your first morning given the time change. Get started early, bundle up, set your playlist and hop in the car. No excuses.

Simply drive up to the top of the crater, park find a good place to watch an amazing sunrise. A fair amount of tourists will show up at the last second so we recommend getting there early and walking around the side. We found a little enclave on the crater to share to ourselves.

Bring warm clothes!
