  1. I spent a week in Chile just before Christmas. A few pictures:


    High up near the border with Argentina (c. 3930m). The road referred to in the sign was a dirt track with 44 hairpins.


    A jewel lizard in one of the National Parks.


    The San José volcano venting.

    Here (attached) is a kmz file that you can load with Google Earth. It features the GPS coordinates of places where I took photos. (To attach it, I needed to give it a .zip extension; either rename it with a .kmz extension or use the enclosed .kml file.)

      Cheers! The first picture would make a great FSKY1.

      Glad you like it. FWIW, the rightmost peak in the mountains in the distance is Alto de Los Leones.

      I see green, yellow, blue and possibly orange on that lizard. It's the M&M Gecko! :P

      The orange ones don't appear to be scales like the other colours. Even on the original image, I find it hard to make out what they are. Maybe it is skin in the process of being shed.

      Maybe faded flecks of blood from the last tourist it ate? I know they're tiny, which means they must hunt in packs to take down large prey.

      Is that crucifix in the third picture a wayside shrine?

      Something like that. It was near a trail, and also on the edge of a small settlement (Latitude=-33.823693; Longitude=-70.050217; Elevation= 1883 m).

      The name on it is Juan E Molina N, 4 April 1965 - 1 April 2002 (the last digits uncertain, since there's undergrowth obscuring them on my photo).
