Volcanoes: A Year in Pictures

2011 was a year of extremes both in the weather and geology.  I ran across some great pictures posted on back on December 16th highlighting the eruptions of some of the world's most active and INACTIVE (until recently) volcanoes. (Credits: Reuters, AFP, USGS, Getty Images, AP)
