[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Calbuco is a very explosive late Pleistocene to Holocene andesitic volcano south of Lake Llanquihue that underwent edifice collapse in the late Pleistocene, producing a volcanic debris avalanche that reached the lake.

At least 9 eruptions since 1837, with the last in 1961. Strong explosions occurred in April 1917, and a lava dome formed in the crater accompanied by hot lahars. The last major eruption of Calbuco, in 1961, sent ash columns 12-15 km high and produced plumes that dispersed mainly to the SE and two lava flows were also emitted.

Hi Sky,
Excellent landscape! This makes me want to go back to Hawaii and Volcano's National Park. There you can get real close to real flowing lava.
