Volcanos on ThrowbackThursday

Throwback Thursday; Me (about 1-2 years old with my Great Grandpa Hoerth.

Ever since I was I child nature and especially natural disasters intrigued me.  Since Mexico's Fire Volcano is stirring my mind was already on volcanoes.  And on this day in 1883 the largest recorded volcanic explosion in history was recorded.  The effect of the Krakatau explosion was felt around the world.  This explosion was so large that most of the Island in Indonesia fell into the ocean causing Tsunamis. (Information is from  So the flashback is on Vintage Volcanoes.
