Getting Toasted

My guide, Yvonne Baur, took this photo of me taking a photo of the lava she led me to. How hot was it? I felt like I was getting second degree burns on my forearms.

This was about as close as I could get before the 1000+ degree heat got to be too much. The gloves were for protection in case of a fall; they provided no protection from the heat at all.
