Middle left: The photo is of Doug Miller at the top of El Mauco hill near Concon, which is north of Valparaiso in Chile. The photo was taken by Michael Miller, Tawa, Wellington. The walk to the top of the hill takes about 2hrs, going past many types of cacti and other interesting plants, and you are rewarded at the top with superb views of Concon and Reñaca, with Valparaiso in the distance through the sea mist.
