It was nice, very chilly but the site was amazing. Would visit again. The staff were friendly and warned us that it was really cloudy but luckily we were still able to view the crater.

Enjoyed the drive up this behemoth as much as seeing the stunning blue lake at the top. Was cloudy at first but went and got a hot chocolate and the sun came out. Would definitely recommend if you have the time.
