Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius

I took a few more steps back in time today. Seeing the ruins in Rome over the past few days has been great, so I took a trip down to Napoli too see Pompeii. After viewing the abandoned city, I made my way up to the top of the volcano that destroyed it. It is the most dangerous volcano in the world, as it has the highest surrounding population density for active sites. There were seismic activity monitors everywhere around the massive crater at the top.
