Title

Paillaco hills east of Caburgua

Description

This image is one of many of the snags left by an immense fire in the 1940s that burned the forests of southern Chile. According to local residents, the fire coincided with the blooming of the quila, a vine-like bamboo that dies after going to seed. This raises fire hazzards and causes an explosion of the rodent population.
