Inside Passage Magic

Chile’s West coast is lined with islands towering over the channel between them.  I awoke at sunrise and took the first few photos from my stateroom.  At higher elevations there were glaciers.

The Big Island is mostly covered by lava fields and volcanic ash. The beaches are no exception. Few of them are sandy. While visiting the petroglyphs, I spoke to a lady who said “I don’t do drugs, but there are some trippy looking trees up at the North end of this island. Just drive past Hawi until the road ends.” She forgot to mention the steep trail down to the beach.

This is a magical place where molten lava and poisonous gases spew forth from the ground. Nature is at its peak of fury here. The message is we are nothing. In minutes one passes from desolate inhospitable areas at altitude to lush rain forests and pacific beaches. The landscape is unreal often covered by lava flows.

This is mostly about street photography, but I thought I would show this offbeat coastal scene first.

What is the difference between a baboon and a wind surfer?  Wind surfers are less likely to try and break into your car.  This is where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet.  Funny, but I could not find a line in the water.  I photographed the baboons from too close for safety.  They were running around wild in the street.
