volcanic-explosion As some of you know, I live near Yellowstone National Park. The park sits on top of the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest active supervolcano on the continent.

There have been massive eruptions a few times over the last few million years. If the supervolcano erupted again, it could wipe out a good part of the western US, and maybe more.

I did many years ago, and remembering this it somehow triggered me to one day travel to the U.S. with my wife. I was also in search of promising and overwhelming landscapes, of people, animals, and the way of living, as well as anything that would come our way.… Read more
