Up to the south slopes of Etna, with a short hike up to a small crater. A bunch a guys there who had biked up from Catania, that would have been fun (50 km, 5,800' climb), or at least going home would have been fun.

On the rim of a small and very inactive crater. Top of Etna was maybe 4-5,000' higher, and letting off steam (considered to be a good thing) --
