An Option Not Taken

by written on August 22, 2010

The park ranger told us about this place and we passed it also on the ship's tour. I did not know about it or I would have tried it when I found out that the Volcano House was closed for renovation.

I was told that in addition to rooms with kitchens that there is also a cafeteria.
