Pucon & Villarica

January 31, 2009  •  Leave a Comment
After Easter Island we flew back to Santiago and took a nightbus to Pucon in the Chilean Lake District. Where among other things we hiked Villarica. It is an active volcano and continuously "farts" the most obnoxious smelling sulfur gases. And some days you can even see the molten lava at the bottom of the crater. But Villarica has not had a major eruption in decades.But it's the middle of the night here and I have to get up in a couple of hours so that's about all I'm going to say about that. Just finished uploading all the pictures so check out the full album for more.A few days later Maria headed back to San Francisco while I took a bus back down to Puerto Montt and then a 4-day ferry to Puerto Natales in Southern Patagonia (pics later). Heading out on the Torres del Paine hike first thing in the morning.
