The sparsely vegetated pyroclastic cone at the lower right with a strip of snow on its crater rim is Volcán Apagado, also known as Hualiaque.  Seen in an aerial view from the NW with the rugged snow-capped Chilean Andes in the background, it lies in the center of the peninsula between the Gulf of Ancud and the Reloncaví estuary. The pyroclastic cone lies within a 6-km-wide depression breached to the SW.  The broad symmetrical Hornopirén volcano, capped by snow fields, lies to the east of Apagado at the left center.
