During a trip to Indonesia in August, Furniture/Today Associate Editor Tom Russell and industry sourcing expert and consultant J. Jewett took a side trip to Mount Bromo, an ancient volcano. The two left the Shangri-La Hotel in Surabaya at midnight and arrived at the national park about 3:30 a.m.
From there, dozens of Jeeps took tourist s up to a viewing area from which they watched the sun rise. This also provided a spectacular early morning view of the volcanic range, which includes the dormant cone of Mount Betok. From there, visitors took the Jeeps back down the mountain to a volcanic sand floor, where they rode horses to the other side of the mountain.
The landscape around Mount Bromo was shaped by volcanic activity.
