Photos of Chile's Volcanic Ash


I just saw these photos from the volcanic eruption in Chile recently.  Apparently it is part of a mountain  chain which has about 2,000 volcanoes.  It is the second largest mountain chain in the world after Indonesia.

Although the photos of the ash look a bit surreal, the eruption and evacuation caused the Chilean government to evacuate the residents into shelters.  A 6.2 magnitude quake recently occurred as well, with thankfully no deaths reported.

.....I'm hoping that Mother Nature goes on a long vacation soon.
