Was there in April 2005. Walked well past the "viewing" deck and supposed "fence" and came to a spot along the rim above the floor that was right against the crater wall. Kind of unsettling to be stepping over 12 inch wide cracks to get to the crater edge. Of course, I just had to do a "Hang Ten" right on the edge!! A little lava cone starting and, right at the bottom of the wall, a pretty good sulfur vent. Yep, right at the exact spot that the 2008 vent opened and formed the current lava lake.
