The roots growing on the rock-face are phenomenal. Is this a natural chasm or a result of the volcano?
What interesting pictures. Love all those ferns - there are many in the woods here too as this is a rain-forest area.

The mountain itself formed as volcanic activities and the color of the soil is granularized black lava rock. The chasm, I think, formed as the hot lava cooled down suddenly.
