A Sea of Ash: Argentina

With credit to the enormous blast of Chile’s Volcan Puyehue, marvel at an unrecognizable Lake Nahuel Huapi, saturated with volcanic ash. The lake rests at 2,500 feet above sea level, in the beautiful Patagonian foothills. It’s waters, susceptible to climate change, carry an average surface temperature of forty-five degrees Fahrenheit. Here, we watch anxiously as a less-than-surefooted diver maneuvers within a batter-like consistency of Nahuel Huapi’s unrecognizable surface.
