Chile volcano

This amazing shot from today really shows the force behind a volcano as the Smoke and ash rise from the Chaiten volcano, in Chaiten, Chile Saturday. It also reminds me of Mount St. Helens back in 1980 when I was a child growning up in Seattle. Chilean authorities evacuated hundreds of people from remote villages in southern Chile after the volcano erupted, sending minor earthquakes rippling through the region.(AP Photo/Daniel Basualto)
