From Sand to Grass, Admiring Mount Bromo’s Savanna

by Apr 24, 2019

I didn’t think I was asleep that long… Are we still at Mount Bromo?

Yeah, it’s only been a couple minutes since we left the sand.

Something that a lot of people don’t talk about after getting to their destination is coming back from said destination. Just getting to the destination is really only a little more than half the story. I find it odd, and am even guilty of it myself, that I rarely talk about coming back.

After a visit to the volcano, we made the long journey home. That would be about another 3 hours home, half of it more than likely on rough roads. Hopefully this leg of the car ride will be more fruitful than the first half.

Where Is It

Leaving Mount Bromo, about 6 miles away over uneven sandy terrain is a valley of grassy green hills.

What to Do

Keep doing what you’ve been doing this whole morning. Take more photos! Actually, you can do whatever you’d like to do and since it’s not as messy as sand then that opens up more ideas.

I had heard someone talking about camping out this way. Whether that’s allowed or not is open to debate but in light of recent volcanic activity, probably not the best idea.

Stay Green Happy Valley

Whereas the sand dunes were a mixture of surreal alieness, the grassy savanna brings calmness and rest. Where the earlier areas brought to mind of destruction and barrenness, here is fertility and growth.

I would have liked to have spent more time in solitude however this was a short trip and there’s still much more to do and a longer drive home.
