The Puyehue-Cordon Caulle Volcanic EruptionJun 11, 2011
A volcanic eruption and the forces of nature it releases is something to behold and respect. On June 5th the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcano chain near Entrelagos, Chile erupted sending an ash and rock plume 6 miles into the air. The images are frightening and beautiful at the same time.
