Ancud, Chiloe sits in the distance
These houses on stilts are a typical style of construction on the Island of Chiloe. The water level varies with the tide.
This Catholic Church in Castro is typical of church construction on the Island of Chiloe. Many churches on the island were made without the use of nails. The second image shows the interior of this building.

Saltos de Petrohue
El Lago de Todos los Santos. So named because it was discovered on “all saints day” the 1st of November.
The waters of the Saltos (falls) de Petrohue have an emerald color to them. The water comes from el Lago de Todos Los Santos (the lake of all the Saints) that is upstream.
Volcan Osorno from the air. Looking east towards Argentina.
The base of the Volcan Osorno seen above the Saltos de Petrohue is barely visible through the clouds. On a sunny day, it towers over the falls.
