Santiaguito dome complex overview
Dome names and periods of activity, from left to right: El Caliente (1929 - 1939, 1967 - present), La Mitad (1939 - 1949), El Monje (1949 - 1958), El Brujo (1958 - 1977). Info source: Harris et al., Bull. Volc., 2003. For zooming purposes this photo is a better bet.

These two videos are from people that climbed onto the erupting dome, the first during an eruption and the second of walking into the crater. Note that this is not particularly 'safe' as discussed here.

Good luck with fulfilling your dream! I think Stromboli is your nearest sure bet. I would love to see many of the things you have one day.

Most of what you can see there is/are solidified lava flows rather than ash piles. Sometimes when there are larger explosions, ash and other rock fragments go get mixed in.

Yup, I love your words of wisdom on these
beautiful volcanoes!

I still need to take my wife up to Yellowstone.
Also, there's several volcanoes in the Philippines "Ring of Fire" we need to explore.
