    Colima Volcano Special (5 days expedition to observe and photograph Colima volcano, Mexico)

    Colima volcano is one of the most active in North America and one of the potentially most dangerous ones. It has had more than 30 periods of eruptions since 1585, including several significant eruptions in the late 1990s. Scientific monitoring of the volcano began 20 years ago.

    The Colima volcanic complex is the most prominent volcanic center of the western Mexican Volcanic Belt.  It consists of two southward-younging volcanoes, Nevado de Colima (the 4320 m high point of the complex) on the north and the 3850-m-high historically active Volcán de Colima at the south.
    A group of cinder cones of probable late-Pleistocene age is located on the floor of the Colima graben west and east of the Colima complex. Volcán de Colima (also known as Volcán Fuego) is a youthful stratovolcano constructed within a 5-km-wide caldera, breached to the south, that has been the source of large debris avalanches.  Major slope failures have occurred repeatedly from both the Nevado and Colima cones, and have produced a thick apron of debris-avalanche deposits on three sides of the complex.  Frequent historical eruptions date back to the 16th century.  Occasional major explosive eruptions (most recently in 1913) have destroyed the summit and left a deep, steep-sided crater that was slowly refilled and then overtopped by lava dome growth.

  • Basketball

    On this day, in 1892, the first true basketball game was played.

    Doctor James Naismith invented the game for the YMCA to be played during the winter months in Springfield, Massachusetts.

    The first game had nine players on each side and used a soccer ball and peach baskets for equipment. The game was thirty minutes long and ended with a score of 1-0. The lone basket was scored by William Chase from twenty-five feet. Originally, Naismith wrote thirteen rules and most of them are still in place today!
