Cerro La Ola y Maricunga en Atacama - Chile

Photo: Panoramic view from Cerro La Ola towards Llano La Ola or Llano los Arroyos. Below is the intersection of the roads to Maricunga and Acerillos. (Atacama region; Chile). It was not so easy to reach the summit of this hill over 4000 meters high - but thanks to a mysterious road and a few hours of attempts it turned out. The photo, a survivor of the 1990s. Taken in analogous form (slides) - saved some 20 years and now digitized. (all the dust can never be removed).
(DiaCoOla01-1990; W. Griem 2006)
