The novelist Karen Dionne has recently been in Chaitén, where she has been researching her new novel Boiling Point (she has a blog here about her time in Chaitén, including many images and videos). Karen was kind enough to send The Volcanism Blog the following pictures, giving a vivid impression of what it’s like to get close to the volcano. Karen’s guide on this trip was Nicolas La Penna, who has himself provided us with some wonderful Chaitén images in the past. These pictures were taken on 26 April 2009.
