May - La Silla from base to summit

A view of the La Silla mountain from base to summit. La Silla Observatory, ESO’s first observatory site, can be seen on the sum- mit. At the foot of La Silla is Camp Pelicano, in the narrow valley Quebrada Pelicano. The small oasis seen here provides the obser- vatory’s water. ESO installed its original base camp in Pelicano in the mid-1960s.
