The dramatic summit spire of Corcovado volcano is seen in this telephoto view from the west from the town of Quellon on the island of Chiloe.  The volcano rises across the Gulf of Corcovado, which lies beyond the ridge in the middle distance.  The main edifice at Corcovado is likely Pleistocene in age, but historical eruptions have been reported, probably from Holocene cinder cones surrounding the volcano. Photo by Bryan Freeman, 2005.
