My friends and I wear masks and look at the ashy landscape from a safe distance.
Three weeks ago, Sinabung had recently erupted and the evacuation zone was expanded. This sign reads “DANGER” and warns people not enter within a 5 km radius of the mountain.
These flowers were a stark contrast to the gray scenery.
Impossible to see the road through the ash “blizzard”.
Gunung Sinabung continues to leak ash in the distance.
As volcanoes erupt across Indonesia, my friends and I ventured to the nearest one, Gunung Sinabung, to see the ashy landscape first-hand and bring some snacks to the many displaced people.
