Cerro Galan, Argentina

In November of 2011 I traveled to Cerro Galan caldera, which is located in NW Argentina to collect samples and do some reconnaissance for a new project in volcanology.

We traveled to the caldera with colleagues from the University in Salta, Argentina.

We set up our tents in the caldera moat and had beautiful blue-bird days.

The high elevations and arid climate make for great volcanic exposures!
