Chaiten volcano erupting

Last week a volcano erupted 10km from the town, Chaiten in southern Chile. 100km is the town Futaleufu, between here is what is know as the Futaleufu Valley. One of the most prestine wilderness areas of fresh water lakes, mountains and glaciers, waterfalls, vast farm lands, beautiful peaceful people and a raging whitewater river called Futaleufu.

Posted on my site is photos of this beautiful valley that now is under threat as inches of ash fall upon. The water in now contaminated, people are fleeing, farm animals are being shiped. All that remains is an empty ghost town. Time will only tell when the people are able to return to their land and life will grow again.

My heart goes to all the beutiful souls there…
