Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

In the news: Chile's Puyehue Volcano

The effects of the volcano that erupted in Chile last Saturday reached us in Uruguay. Yesterday all flights were cancelled to and from the international airport here, and there was also an "orange alert" advising care because of the volcanic ash that shifting wind patterns were carrying this far east.

You can see a short video clip (taken by satellites) of the ash plume at You can also see some amazing and sobering photographs at The Big Picture.

Please pray for those affected by these events.
