Osorno Volcano is located in the Lakes Region of Chile. The lakes are huge and their waters are the most beautiful in color. One would think you were in the Caribbean if it were not for the cool, crisp air and volcano nearby.
Nora and I continued our day trip by taking a boat ride on the lake and exploring the rivers that flow out of it. Every year, salmon make their way upstream to mate in the rivers just below the lake. They are so plentiful that you can see them jumping straight out of the water. Unfortunately, I was there at the wrong time of the year, but what a sight that would be!
I was so amazed by the lakes and by the volcano and I couldn't believe they were real. Sometimes I am shocked by how beautiful the Earth can be. And the crazy thing is, there are so many beautiful places like this all over and I feel so lucky to be able to experience them.
