Hiking a volcano lake
São Jorge is an island situated in the central group of the Azores archipelago. Separated from its nearest neighbors (Pico seen in the background and Faial islands) by the 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) Pico-São Jorge Channel, the central group is often referred as part of the Triangulo group. São Jorge is a relatively long thin island with tall cliffs. This photo was made near the highest point, which is the Pico da Esperança (1,053 m).
