MOUNT PARINACOTA, CHILE AND BOLIVIA
Parinacota is a massive stratovolcano on the border of Sajama National Park (Bolivia) and Lauca National Park (Chile). One of the most dramatic eruptive events in the volcano's past was 8000 years ago, when a major collapse of the edifice produced 6km³ debris avalanche which eventually created Chungarį Lake which you see before you. As I took this picture on a perfectly still Spring morning at over 4600m altitude, I remember thinking what amazing beauty can arise from such periods of creative destruction.
