That's right - and El Nino conditions meant that the Chilean coastal zones were significantly warmer than usual, with the deaths of a lot of fish in warmer waters than usual in some parts. The volcano here is sitting on a base about 4360m ASL, so the "rise" in the photo is about 1990m. Magical area, photo doesn't do it justice.

I can totally understand what you are saying, it looks an amazing area.
